  1. The offspring from the previous generation of P. wahlbergii (the adults I spoke of in my last entry) have now grown, and I have 2 females and 2 males that have reached adult and are mating. I still have a couple of medium nymphs who have a ways to go yet also.

    P. wahlbergii female

    Speaking of Pseudocreobotra wahlbergiis, I had 2 adult couples each in their own net cages. One of the females died the other day, so I put the extra male in with the other couple. This was four days ago. I just discovered this morning the remaining female became low on flies and has eaten both males. Hopefully, at least one of the males successfully fertilized her. I'd taken some pics of the female... Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii adult female (January 2010)

    A Molt!!! Yay!

    Came home from school and one of my male wahlbergii that hasn't eaten in a while looked bigger, lighter, softer, and wetter than normal. I saw a shed skin, he molted perfectly!!! Yay!!! I think he is a subadult now!
  4. Since I last updated on my Pseudocreobotra wahlbergiis they have grown up, some of which are adult and currently mating. None of this new generation shows the bright pink/purple that several of the parents exhibited in their nymph stages. It goes back to the question we all would like to know for sure... is it humidity levels, color of surroundings, etc. that causes variations in the coloring? I don't know. Here are some of the new generation of nymphs and adults mating. Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii nymph (December 2009) Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii mating pair (December 2009)

    Got Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii

    I got 4, 3 appear to be females. After veiwing Yen's pics and seeing how easily the sex is shown, I realize I have to load them up with food to get them nice and fat before sexing them.
  7. I've got a backlog of pics I'd neglected posting. These are from back in April, when the P. wahlbergii nymphs were about L3 or L4. Get ready... and please be patient to load. Here are more P. wahlbergii nymph photos than you'd probably care to see! -continued on next entry...
  8. From about 20 nymphs I purchased a while back, I've been breeding the now grown adults and have ooths and first generation nymphs that are currently starting to reach adulthood, and more that are in different stages from more ooths to nymphs. I'd seperated the adult females into 3 or 4 to a 12x12 net cage, with one or two males apiece in each. A few of the males lasted a while, while some were not so lucky and their adult mating lives were very short... cut off by the agressive females who enjoyed them for a hearty dinner. I ended up having several females fertilized, particularly in the first cage, maybe one fertilized female in the second cage, and none I believe were fertilized in the third cage (as eventually evidenced from their ooths hatching or not). The females live communally together fairly well with lots of consistent food; but even then the males are a likely target for a meal. Eventually the stronger or more agressive females also prey on the other females in the cage... especially in times of lean food sources. But they've produced many ooths which were fertile overall. And a new generation is coming of age, along with plenty of youngsters still at earlier stages. Many different sizes of ooths How would you like to be caught in this grip?
