So my male Peruvian Black Beauty died recently. He was literally ancient, moving very slowly on his privet leaves, his eyes cloudy with age. I was incredibly privileged to witness his actual demise. He literally keeled over and that was that. Sad face. :-(
So..I have replaced him with 2 tiny babies. This one was so small that he escaped and I found him wandering around the animal room admiring all the mantis cages...while they slavered and drooled in a scary savage way at him. He now has a teeny tiny cage with a teeny tiny pot of water and privet until he is big enough. I'm afraid I might have 2 males so a third one is on the cards. I'll wait and see....
