Sad update today:
I came home from work last night to find Declan on the floor of his enclosure collapsed. He was expected to molt to adult any day now.
Looks like Declan fell while preparing for his molt. One of his antennae were broken, and you could see the adult antenna sticking out underneath. He was clearly already detaching from his exoskeleton, as he seemed to have no coordination of his limbs and his tarsi were sitting strangely. I tried giving him honey water 3 times, but he couldn't move or grip anything. There was no way he would be able to molt to adult, or survive the way he was, so I put him in the freezer 😭
