   Following the second moult after leaving the cocoon, the young N. madagascariensis have changed their color from red to yellow-ochre and their legs are proportionally longer than before. The body still has the bulbous egg-sack look and the nymphs still remain together on a group web-structure. They are not catching prey yet.
