Mine start eating each other if I leave them in the little cricket tubs and don't transfer them to the tank. Then their faces go black. I always wondered if the black faces were the manifestation of their cannibalistic sin. (Yes, I was raised by religious nuts...)

Tombo's got the right idea. How about a "hypo melanistic het Tombo Locust"?
Hypo melanistic wouldn't be accurate (hypo means "reduced" or "less" and melanin is the black pigment - these locusts are more correctly "HypERmelanistic") :)

I know the difference between hypo and hyper - that was sort of the point! :whistling2:

I guess it wasn't that funny really.
