News: The Pods Have Hatched!

The pods I have been watching have hatched!  It was very sudden…. I could hear this strange creaking noise, and then, all of the sudden, CRACK!  It sounded like a huge tree had fallen over, but it was one of the pods, ripping open, and spilling these little creatures down through the branches to the ground.  The second and third pods cracked open within a few seconds, and then there were nothing but all of these little pink Morphoids zipping around!  There must have been at least two hundred of them! We managed to get this picture, and catch a few of the little guys, but they were so fast!

I guess the pods were a sort of incubator, after all.

I will post more on these guys soon, after  we’ve had more time to do a preliminary study of them.
