Those are adorable! I want!!!! :D

 

If you ever visit lakes or rivers, try looking for these guys at the sandy edges and you'll probably run across several of them :)

Thank you :) I've found a journal about breeding this species in laboratory so hopefully their methods will work for me too :)

Even in my area? Never seen one in my life but I am in love with them! :)

 

They are VERY widespread so you'll probably be able to encounter some in your area :)

What is the name of the journal? Hope you get some eggs from them! :)

I'm gonna start looking hard for them. I see there's quite a color variety out there too. Also read that nymphs are highly cannibalistic, :unsure: so I hope you have much luck breeding and raising them.

It appears that adults are also cannibalistic cause 3 of my 5 got eaten by the remaining 2 :(
