Hi, these two are my pair of C.orientalis...i actually can´t believe they are alive since they had signs of initial stages of limb rot. But they got through it and are now looking great and eating well.

I still have to buy the third one when christmas are over, so that the pack is complete (Omicron Persei 8) Click the image to open in full size.
Anyway...hope you like...

Nice little guys. A big worm too. Question: I gave one of my C. orientalis a worm to day and decided it was too big to eat so it regergitated the entire worm. Has this ever happened with yours?

Happened once with the male. It happened in the water though, not on land.
I offered him half a worm and he ate it. Then suddenly he opened his mouth and the worm came out.
I realized then that the worm had this disgusting mucus all over it.
I cleaned it by shaking the worm in water and put it in front of Omicron again. He took it again and this time he kept it inside.
It was a rather big half of a worm, but i think the problem was the mucus and not the size.
I´ve read i should offer small worms or choped ones, but both seem to be able to handle worms of a size like the one on the picture...so i guess that size is ok for them.
