Wow that's cool. Keep us posted, it will be interesting to see if the color changes as it gets older.

Amazing that individual made it trough metamorphosis. It isn't a extremely rare case to have a pale larvae but as far as I've heard they are very delicate during the time that is close to metamorphosis. I hope to see it become an adult

Hi Billy,

just saw this old post and the animals are beautiful. Are you sure they are from Serra de Grandola? They present a typical pattern of the animals usually found in Serra de Sintra.

cheers
