Mecynorrhina ugandensis Chapter 3: more blue forms out!

Cheers! Some more blue Mecynorrhina ugandensis hatched successfully. We now kept them into a clean box with a layer of slightly moist substrate (new substrate!) and the pupal cells with an opening (about 2 cm in diameter) covered with a leaf. The box itself is covered by a plastic lid and two holes have been drilled on the sides of the box to provide slight ventilation.

The males in the pictures are around 60 - 65 mm. Exact measurements will be conducted as soon as their horns completely stretch out! The female on the pictures is actually black, not blue!
