Giant Camel Cricket Hatchlings!!!

Great news, my Ceuthophilus gracilipes gracilipes eggs have started hatching out! 😁 I was actually getting a little concerned, as it's been a few months since my adults started breeding, and I saw a few of the eggs laid right up against the sides of the enclosure had rotted and molded over, so I was worried that I was doing something wrong. Evidently, a few of the eggs the adults lay must just be duds, because I'm getting hatchlings now! 😄

Here are some pictures I took, I got a couple shots of a nymph as it was still wriggling out of it's egg! And then some pictures of a fully darkened nymph that hatched earlier.

They're adorable, so glad these are breeding well for me! 😃 Hopefully I can keep them going for many generations to come, I'm loving these absolute giants among camel crickets!

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