I found these while doing some cleaning. Haven't seen this before. There was an uneaten juvenile dubia and an uneaten B. lateralis in her cage. T is a virgin B. emilia.. There was dried up, what looks like spider poo, inside these, But why the shell?? There was the one bigger one and 2 smaller ones.. Not super concerned, just wonder what they are.. Thanks!


toothpick for some reference.

I'm going to have to disagree :eek: with fertilizer beads. Looks like dessicated slug eggs to me. :barf:

Oh man! I suppose fertilizer is a possibillity... :( That's horrible! There is a small amount of substrate in there that has some perlite mixed in. It must have been some potting soil mix.. The rest is regular old peat moss.. I can't remember when how or why!

Well, no worries I don't think. That T is and has been fine. I'll change it too the cocopeat I use tonight.

I feel horrible now..

Thanks all
