D ko lam kung dto po ito ipost dapat. Pa transfer na lang po if mali po.
Tanong ko lang po kasi sobra pong curious lang ako about instars.

Lahat po ba nag inverst and insects na nagmomolt instar po ang tawag?
And if instar nga po, ung mga feeder roaches po ba same din ng scorpions sa dami ng beses po nila mag molt bago maging adult?

Sensya na po sa walang katuturang tanong ko, gusto ko lang maalis ung tanong na to sa isip ko. kasi wala po ko makita sa net na sagot eh. TY po in advance!

eto po :

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Imperial moth (Eacles imperialis) development from egg to pupa, showing all the different instars
An instar is a developmental stage of arthropods, such as insects, between each molt (ecdysis), until sexual maturity is reached.[1] Arthropods must shed the exoskeleton in order to grow or assume a new form. Differences between instars can often be seen in altered body proportions, colors, patterns, or changes in the number of body segments. Some arthropods can continue to molt after sexual maturity, but these subsequent molts are generally not called instars.
For most insect species the term instar is used to denote the developmental stage of the larval or nymphal forms of holometabolous (complete metamorphism) or hemimetabolous (incomplete metamorphism) insects, but the term can be used to describe any developmental stage including pupa or imago (the adult, which does not molt in insects).

The number of instars an insect undergoes depends on the species and the environmental conditions. Lower temperatures and humidity often slow the rate of development.

Yes, instar ang tawag.

Mas preferred na gamitin ang LS or Body length pagdating sa T's and feeders kasi indefinite ang sizes nila and number of molts bago magmature.. unlike sa scorpions ( kung saan laging gnagamit ang instar ) e naglalaro sa 7i-9i lang ang average maturity Smile Plus, hndi nagkakalayo ang average size ng magkaparehong instar of the same species..
