The rest of my Bantua sp. "Namibia" females still haven't given birth, but some of the offspring from the small litter my first female produced in September have already matured... 😂 Found two freshly matured adult females (and maybe one new adult male) on the 2nd. It took them about 3 months and a week to mature, holy crap is that fast!!! 😮 I totally thought these would take AT LEAST 6-8 months to mature, this species is very fast growing! They just take forever to gestate apparently, especially when you screw up the ventilation levels at first... 😒

Anyways, here is one of the recently matured females:

The other nymphs are either sub-adults or pre-subs, with one straggler looking to be a pre-pre-sub. All my older adult females are due to pop any day now, so there's a lot of anticipation in the air here at the moment, I swear if these new adult females give birth before they do I'm gonna lose it... 😂 One or two of the older adult males are still alive too BTW, they seem pretty long lived.

Anyways, that's gonna do it for this post, thanks for reading, hope everyone enjoyed, I'll see you all next time! 😉
