Eurycantha calcarata Adults!

So a few weeks back a frend of mine from germany came to visit and brought a few sub-adult E. calcarata with him as a gift.

Although this is a very common species in Europe, here in Africa it is still quite rare, so I was incredibly happy to receive these!

Recently I have had a bunch of the moult to adult, so now just a matter of time before we see some eggs ;)

Nice big female

Freshly moulted male

 Male's defense mechanism! Potent!
