My New Katydids!!!

After wanting to work with this genus for years, I finally acquired some eggs of Copiphora sp. "Tarapoto, San Martin, Peru"!!! Thanks to fellow hobbyist Paulo Padilla for trading me 20+ eggs, really looking forward to working with these decent sized, pretty, predatory katydids. 😁

I got my eggs in a well ventilated deli cup on top of a thin layer of moist coconut fiber, and am keeping them at 75-85F°. Hopefully they will develop and hatch within a few months, and I can get to rearing them. 😄

Here is a "meh" quality phone picture of the eggs:

Keeping my fingers crossed for a high hatch rate, curious to see how those bent eggs develop. 🤔 

Well, that does it for this short post, thanks for reading, hope everyone enjoyed, stay safe, and I'll see you all next time! 😉
