I just wanted to make a short post with some pics that I have gathered and thought you guys might enjoy seeing.
Firstly, here's a photo of a freshly molted adult Eurycotis decipiens!

Thirdly, here's a picture of a freshly emerged Scarites vicinus!

Now for the updates.
First, I have noticed a couple oothecae in my Eurycotis lixa enclosure, so looks like these guys are breeding and doing pretty well.
Second, I now have ten adults out of my thirteen T.olegrandjeani. I seem to have three adult females and seven adult males.
Third and last, about four of my adult E.decipiens have perished, so I now have around six adults left. I also have about twenty-five or so small nymphs from them. I still have tons of oothecae, but the hatch rate has decreased dramatically along with the number of nymphs that come out of the oothecae that actually hatch. :( So the oothecae haven't done so well since I had to remove them from the previous piece of cork bark they were stuck on.
Well hope you guys found this post interesting, and until next time, goodbye!
