I'd love to get my hands on some Caribbean line though. Too bad nobody lets them out often enough.

Yeah, I've had my eyes open waiting for some of the Caribbean species to be made available. That Africa question is a good one, I haven't thought of that.

Well, the kids wanna grow up fast...There expletives that can be inserted here to express my utter lack of preparedness. And now for the picture show! I was kinda rushing through the shoot and editing, you can tell I had the IR lamps on and had to tone it down in a couple of the pix but I don't care, I'm tired and I just blew an hour or more on these pix...appreciate foo!

For those of you scratching your heads...Yes, this does challenge Francke & Jones' (1982) documentation of an 8 day first instar.

Thanks. I did that at some ungodly hour and looking at that second slew of pix, I did a terrible job of sizing and darkening to pull out the IR - I'll try and re-edit later because that's the worst photojob I've posted.
