I managed to get a male and female of this lovely species last week in the Cameron Highlands. Both seem to be doing well, although the female acted rather erratically when I first housed her and I thought she was dead a few times. She seems ok now. Perhaps it was stress. Feeding them on small cockroaches. She doesn't look fat enough for any ootheca yet. Any comments/advice welcome!
