Polyphaga Updates!

My Polyphaga saussurei have been doing very well, and turns out they are much closer to adulthood than I anticipated. In fact, it would seem that one of them may have matured already!

Here are a couple pictures of the (probably) mature female:














Hopefully if it is mature, she will start laying some oothecae! Can't wait to have some babies of this gigantic Polyphaga species!

My Polyphaga aegyptiaca have been doing good too, however, no oothecae have hatched as of yet. The females sure have been cranking out those eggcases though, there are TONS of them in the substrate! My male matured last month, but I never got around to photographing him until now.

Here are some pictures of them:

Hopefully some of their oothecae will be hatching soon, I will be sure to let you guys know when they do!

Well, that's gonna be it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and I'll see you all next time! :)
