Wow, she's big! How old is she, and what does she normally eat? I'm guessing other bugs, not honey, but not really sure.

She likes bottle flies, fluffy wax worms, moths and just about anything that moves. She is just under 8 months old. Some of them actually love honey and the budwings are one that do. It is supposed to be real healthy for them. She will hold the stick and eat off all the honey then drop the stick

Been working too much and not soaping enough! Where are those nymph pics? I need a good distraction. :)

I forgot to take the picture. Will see if my daughter will take some pics of the nymphs tonight. They look like long legged black ants.
