Macropanesthia Molts, Panchlora Babies & More!

Man has there been a lot going on in the collection lately, mostly expansion TBH, which I'll get to in subsequent posts, but for now here are some more overdue updates on some of my roach species. 😄 

Both my Macropanesthia molted this month, and dang are they getting chonky! 😁 Fingers crossed the continue to do well for me, so far they seem super hardy!

Here are some pics of the larger female:

Adorable little things, can't wait until they become massive beasts! 😄

And now for a US hobby first... I've gotten babies from my Panchlora sp. "Guadeloupe"!!! 😁😁😁 I'm so glad they've bred, hopefully there will be many more babies where these came from, so I can help to establish them in the US hobby as quickly as possible! 😊

Some pictures of the little cuties:

Very cute, typical Panchlora nymph build on these little ones, as opposed to the more gangly appearance of say Panchlora sp. "White".

Lastly, I'm very happy to announce one of my Gyna bisannulata females has matured, woot woot! 😃 Another one or two of my females appear to be subadults as well, they are all rather small compared to G.capcuina, and apparently my females are smaller than average... Perhaps because of the small container they're in and thin layer of substrate I had them on... Oh well, small's better than nothing, at least they're maturing in time to mate with some of the many males that have matured. 😅

Case in point, I went to get pictures of said female, and she was already hooking up with a male! So no solo female pictures ATM, just some hot and steamy roach lovemaking photos... 😜

Hopefully I get some good broods from these beauties, I am keeping them quite warm compared to how I kept my capucina, thanks to my new heat cable... So that's good at least. Honestly might want to reacquire capucina before the year's over as well and give them another shot, we'll see.

Well, that's gonna do it for this post, but stay tuned, I've just got in a bunch of new species for my collection, which I'm going to be sharing over the next couple of weeks! 😁 Thanks for reading everyone, hope you enjoyed, stay safe, and I'll see y'all in the next post! 😉
