I raise the temperature for the tadmen and begin talking to them. After our brief hellos, one of them says he’s done for the day. It looks like I should have talked with them a little more yesterday to get that response. After picking a tadman up, I see that their legs have grown a little bit, they look more developed.
I hop over to the insect terrarium and water it down. I’m curious as to why the tadmen do not need to be fed this long after they’ve hatched. My guess is that they don’t need a lot of food at this stage and if they do get hungry they’ll suck the blood of another tadmen, and then they’ll rely on me.
I chat and tickle the tadmen a bit and then leave for the night.
