Got a trio of larvae last month, and plan to get a couple more once my traeger pellets have finished fermenting. :) Can't wait until these beauties mature! :D

The video came out nice, it really shows how bright they are. Not an easy thing to photograph.

Thanks! :D It definitely isn't easy to get a good photograph of the glow, at least not if you want a clear picture, which is why I've taken a couple videos of the adults glowing to show that aspect of them off a bit. :)

You have to upload your photos to a different website that will let you upload large pictures, and then copy the URL from there and use that to put the photos on here.
