    Mites move. They also wipe off on a damp paper towel.

    My female has teeeeeeny speckles like that too, hers are all inside the alien heads and towards the belly. They do make me do a double-take sometimes:

    I put it down to colouration when I first got him but today started worrying and second guessing so Iíve bought predatory mites just to make sure
