Oh pretty! :D
They're very cute and dinky.
The abdomen is quite different I note. And look at those forearms - already on something so small they look vicious!

Yeesss, very pleased for you. I'm glad you are a happy soul with all the bugs. Honest...

Well, they do look healthy and happy, and I'm sure you will give them the best of homes.

How big are these ones going to grow to?
