One of my sungaya inexpectata moulted into adult the other day! Well, i think so anyway. Its now got a bulbous bit on the end of its tail for egg laying and its patterns really stand out more than they did before. Soon as i sort my cam i'll get pics up :)

How long till she starts laying. A week or two? I put her a cricket tub full of coco fibre in her exoterra, couldn't find my bag of vermiculite. I assume i'll be able to see little holes or dents where shes poked her bum in and layed an egg?

Nice one! Make sure you don't keep all the eggs... I did and ended up with about 4lb weight of nymphs.... :D

I understand that theres a small chance of producing a male indian stick insect if you keep the eggs at 30 degrees C for the first 25-30 days from laying. I wonder if you could use the same method with sunnys? I know there aren't any males in captivity though, so maybe not. Wonder what the male looks like?

it won't happen to indians either, all female parents means all females, the only chance is a bit of gynandromorphism

means it is a female, but shows some aspects of a male, so it can look like a male, but it is in fact still a female, and thus won't be able to mate/fertilize ova

you know, I never really get the word skanky, to me it seems as diff. people always mean slightly different things with it, but then again, english really isn't my first language :roll:
