    Looking for adult Male Heterochaeta orientalis for breeding

    The title says it all. I bought 2 L2s, and they both turned out to be female. Let me know if you have any for trade or sale. Thanks!

    Heterochaeta sp. raptorial mismoult

    It does look a little bowed, but I’ve seen the little one straighten out and hold itself up. It can hold itself up, but not for very long. It can’t hold prey. This is the end of day 2 after molting.

    Heterochaeta sp. raptorial mismoult

But this Ooth hasn’t hatched, nor have the other 3 that were laid after this one on 3/10. I think I oversprayed, because after...

    Ootheca development

    @MrGhostMantiswhen you say that, do you mean there are changes or aren’t changes? @hibiscusmile I noticed that too. This is my first time breeding and, hopefully, hatching ghost oothecae.  The first Ooth my female laid was unfertilized, because the male took his time becoming an adult.    im...
