And now for something completely different: a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach giving birth.
What, you say? You thought cockroaches just laid eggs? Well, they do! Just… some species incubate their eggs - still within their eggsac- internally and then ‘birth’ them once they’ve hatched. (This is called being ovoviviparous).
It’s cool and gross and fascinating and not something most people ever get to see, so I got permission to share this great video my friend Cindi took of one of the collection cockroaches giving birth. I’ve tried to tag it as thoroughly as possible.
Catching up on work and commission stuff during the weekend, a quick break earlier tonight to post some of these thumbnails/ sketches of Fallout that were originally for my vertical banner. I’ll probably try finishing up some of these later eventually~
