    How are you liking the Violins? They are fast little buggers aren't they!? Still, zoom, still, zoom...!
    I've got too many females ready to go but no males. I think I have 1 sub adult male, so it's critical that he survives his final molt.

    I love the little violins, they're big enough to catch small crickets and roaches. They don't seem to move much, just hang upside down on the fake leaves.

    Inside their cages they are about the same as ghosts (a little more "hunterish" than ghosts I think) but have you taken the Violins out to handle? They seem to like to run. I've had them run right off the end of my hands several times , never dropped any of the other insects but these guys are unpredictable to me so far.

    Can't say that I handled them. Only time I did was when I first got them, transferring them to their new home.
