Small Bantua Update

My Bantua sp. "Namibia" are still doing well, no babies yet, though I'm expecting some any day now!🤞Most of my nymphs have matured at this point, with only 2-3 small nymphs remaining. Before they all mature though, I wanted to get some pictures of one of the nymphs fully covered in their waxy secretion, which appears to be unique to this genus. Well I'm happy to say that a week or two ago, I did just that! 😄

Here are a couple pictures of a subadult male, covered in the waxy secretion:

I think that male actually matured a couple days after that photoshoot, so I got those pics just in time! 😁 I'll be sure to keep y'all updated on any big changes with this species, fingers crossed my next post about them will be showing off some babies! 😊

Well, that's gonna do it for this post, I hope you all enjoyed this little update, thanks for reading, I'll see you all in the next post! 😉
