Three Ps & a 'Pod

My Paranauphoeta formosana are doing very well, all of the nymphs born in July are now either subadults or fresh adults, they grow so fast! Additionally, another smaller litter was born between then and now, and I'm still hoping for more babies from my original females.

Here are some pictures of one of the subadult nymphs:

Very pretty and very fast growing species, hopefully they'll continue to breed and do well for me! 😁

Despite only ending up with a single adult female, and a dozen freaking males, I've been able to breed my Parcoblatta divisa "Montgomery, AL"! 😅 Thankfully my female has been pumping ooths out, and P.divisa ooths have quite a few eggs in them, so now that I've confirmed said ooths are hatching and incubating properly, I should have an established colony in no time.

Well, my Princisia vanwaerebeki "Androhamana" STILL haven't given birth, despite all of my females looking like sausages... 😂 

Decided to take a few pictures of one of my larger females the other day, so here she is:

That last picture comes the closest to accurately capturing their coloration, my camera really struggles making the females look as brightly patterned as they do in real life... 😅 Anyways, hopefully these things give birth soon, fingers crossed! 🤞

Lastly, my Cubaris sp. "White Ducky" have given birth, and their mancae are probably THE cutest isopod mancae, ever. 🥰 They're so perfectly round and chonky, and even in their first instar appear to have the adults' patterning, just a bit faded. So glad these have bred for me, they're probably my favorite Cubaris sp. that I've worked with so far. 😁

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