Lucihormetica grossei BABIES!!!

WOOHOO!!! 😁😁😁 Of all the roaches in my collection currently, the ones I've been most eager to breed are my Hormetica strumosa and my Lucihormetica grossei ("Mega Glowspot Roaches"), and I can now say that I have bred the latter!!!

I found a few first instar nymphs in their enclosure on the 27th, I haven't gotten a real headcount but there are at least three, and it does seem like it's a small litter, as it was one of the smaller females that gave birth and she didn't even look that gravid to begin with, (whereas my largest female is basically a walking sausage right now, so hopefully she'll give birth soon as well to a much larger litter!). But I'm not complaining, I'm just glad I got babies period, as my last attempt at breeding this species was unsuccessful on account of me receiving adults in the past, which handle shipping horribly. SO stoked I got babies from them to begin with, and I hope there is more where this came from!

Here are some pictures of one of the L1 nymphs:

So cute right? 😊 Really hope they do well for me, I love Hormetica and Lucihormetica, and really hope to be successful in breeding both genera!

Anyways, that's it for this update, thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed, stay safe, and I'll see you all in the next post! 😉
