    Extatosoma tiaratum Last year I bought 4 macleays spectre nymphs, 3 female and 1 male at about L3, all from the same dealer on the internet. When they matured they bred and between the 3 laid well over 2000 eggs. I remember my 2 of my females were unusually small when they reached their final...

I would like to know why? Obviously inbreeding within most mammals, especially Homo sapiens can lead to...

    Hi, just wanted to know whether anyone knew of any problems when inbreeding, because i know of alot of people do it to make specific combos, so if anyone does/has done it could tell me any dangers. I was wondering whether it could cause extra slugs in boas etc.
