Simandoa & Hormetica Updates!

Well, my largest Simandoa conserfariam nymph is a nymph no more, he matured a couple days ago, and he is beautiful! 😁 I can't believe it took me this long to acquire this species, the beautiful adult coloration, coupled with the faint squeaking they make when disturbed has made me fall in love with them! 😄

Here are some pictures of him:

He's really something isn't he? Can't wait until the other two nymphs mature, this is one good looking species!

Speaking of good looking species, two of my Hormetica apolinari males have matured, and oh boy are they gorgeous!!! 😍

Unfortunately they are runts, I've been keeping all six of mine in a gallon enclosure, planning on moving them when they seemed crowded, but instead of them getting crowded, I just stunted their growth, which is a bit of a bummer... But hey, they are still stunning regardless, and I'll be rehousing them very soon! 🙂

Here are some pictures of the males:

And here is a male compared to a male L.grossei

I really hope I can breed this species successfully, unfortunately my L.grossei female died without producing any offspring, and my L.subcincta female hasn't given birth either... 😢 Hopefully the same thing won't happen to my H.apolinari, we'll find out I suppose.

Well, that's gonna do it for today folks, thanks for reading, will see you all next time! 😉
