Came home around midnight last night to find that Sir Reginald had molted while I was gone. I wish I had been around to see it, but the molt went fine it looks like.

Haha thanks. XD Sir is quite a friendly female too. =P Kinda figured she was female since I tend to have that luck with animals I name gender specific names... those that have no outward signs of gender until later in development at least. xD

Like Connor, named after the guy from Boondock Saints, my female cockatiel. =P

lol. I name most of my mantids after foods. I dont know why I still hang on to that habit. I tend to recycle names as well. I have had a couple Chocolate milks and Greenbeans, but only one Juicyfruit. Juicyfruit, (a Hierodula multispina), was so fruity looking as she had pink, purple, green and orange on a yellow base.

She is now a mottled brown adult with green eyes. She doesn't look so fresh and fruity anymore. ;)

Haha Jucyfruit sounds like she was a beautiful nymph and is a very pretty adult. ^^ Hm I don't have much of a system with names though, just whatever feels right at the time really, even if it tends to lead to much gender confusion XD
