    Here are some better pictures of the Panchlora sp. "White"! In case anyone was wondering, the males are about two CM long, and the female is almost three.

    Lol yeah, they keep their heads pretty tucked in when they are in their resting positions, and that's the only time I'm able to get pics of them 'cause once they are alert they rapidly take flight! :eek:

    OMG, I would like to say to say that those are not G.capucina nymphs, I don't even have G.capucina. These are the much more common Gyna lurida. Don't know what went through my head as I was writing that.

    I like these guys more and more. Having a horrid time with my dubia... Don't want to feed them to my T's. They are just so damn cute. Going to have to get a couple of the hisses as pets I guess. :p

    Yeah, I always feel kind of bad feeding off my roaches, I never feel that way with crickets or mealworms, but I always feel guilty when feeding my roaches to things. Haha, you'll turn into a Blatticulturist yet, just you wait and see! :p It often starts with using them as feeders, then you get a pet species, and another, and another, then 10 more, and so on and so forth. :D

    Got some new roach species from a friend a few days ago! :)

    Lol, glad to see this thread is fulfilling its purpose! :D
    No they don't have a red spot on their head per say, rather the whole head is an reddish-orange color, except for the eyes of course. :)
