    Art requests!

    Gyna pomposa or Gyna gloriosa would be cool! 😄
  3. No problem, hope you're able to rehydrate her and get her healthy again, good luck!

    Porcellio magnificus

    The problem with Spanish Porcellio is that since lots of them are so picky about their humidity, how humid you keep them really depends on what your ambient humidity levels are... And those are different for everyone and change with the seasons.

  6. Thank you for the help! She is extremely dehydrated and looks quite a bit different than my other hisser, so you’re absolutely right, I think she’s a hybrid of some sort. We’ll see how this goes

    Porcellio magnificus

    Hmmm....sounds like they are a lot more pain in the butt to keep than I anticipated. Quite glad I got rid of them now cause I'm using that space for Porcellio expansus, which are doing much better.

    Porcellio magnificus

    I have not witnessed cannibalism of living specimens and I have had hundreds of mid-size to adult specimens in one tiny shoebox. It is a rather touchy species on the humidity and ventilation and it took me some years to get a hang of it. Both solid and screen lid attempts proved extremely harmful over a long period but seemed to work okay the first half a year. I think it is as much the cage design as the level of care and you have to water a small amount every day or two depending on how fast the substrate dries (during certain times of year the humidity can be high and watering is not needed for weeks).
  9. Just know that it's almost certainly a Gromphadorhina hybrid, and definitely starving and dehydrated, all those pre-packaged hissers are... With some babying, if it isn't too far gone it should recover nicely, and probably won't harm your dubias. Shouldn't have any diseases or parasites being a CB individual, just dehydration and malnutrition...
  10. Today I went to Petco with my gf to pick up some supplies for our new adopted rats, and I happened to go through the reptile section / see the feeders, and I “saved” (stole) the only living hisser in the whole aisle. I just wanted to ask if there’s any health issues I should expect coming from Petco’s stock, and communicable diseases, or other concerns I should have before I introduce her to my colony. I use dubias as feeders for my leopard gecko, and I don’t want them to catch anything from this new roach, as I’ll eventually be housing them together as long as I can see that she’s not being aggressive. According to the packaging, my new roach has been without food or water since February 13th, and today is April 4th. She was extremely thirsty, and her “buddy” appeared to have been dead for a long time. I’ve done my fair share of taxidermy before, he looked like he had been dead for over a month. I’m worried I’m in over my head, and that she’s gonna be beyond saving. I’ve scoured this forum for information, but I would still greatly appreciate any tips you can offer! (I will try and post some pics soon)

    Howdy everybody !!!

    Hello there , looking forward to meeting everybody. Currently I keep 4 species of cockroach which are Blaptica Dubia, Blaberus fusca, Elliptorhina chopardi and Aeluropoda insignis. Currently I only use my dubia Roaches as feeders. I also keep some isopods and tarantulas. Hopefully i can get more cockroach species in the near future, and learn everything I can about cockroaches in general.

    Bantua sp. "Namibia"

    Nymphs are doing good, many from the recent wave of births are nearly half grown already! And I got some decent pictures of my biggest female next to two males, (and some other random adult pictures too).

    What do you keep your gyna species in?

    I can provide a +1 for gasket tubs; they're perfect for these.
  20. Hey- new to the game, but turns out I’m actually pretty good at breeding discoids- who knew.. So, I’m in S.FL and looking to sell off my surplus inventory ( I have a bearded, that’s how all this started, fun journey ) but, I’m not sure of what the “market rate” is.. can any one help me out with what I should ask as a fair price per xs/s/m/l EA and in bulk Qty. Thanks for any helpful advice!

    Hello from Russia!

    I decided to revisit this topic, and found that the above paper describes G.grandidieri males as having a black thorax, and purple-brown abdomen, like this wild individual. However, besides that one black female in the above paper, it seems that most wild grandidieri females are a similar shade of brown... See this female, almost certainly grandidieri given the range, (and was ID'd by George Beccaloni, the person who photographed the wild male G.grandidieri above). Basically, while there may be the occasional black G.grandidieri in the wild, it's probably rare. I really think Jörg's stock are either line bred G.portentosa, line bred "portentosa" hybrids, or perhaps whatever the sp. "Black Tiger" are in the US, (which are supposedly line bred from the same stock as the tiger hissers, in Europe called "Princisia vanwaerbeki - Tricolor", in US called "Gromphadorhina grandidieri"). If you need more proof, George Beccaloni says true grandidieri have sharp, small tubercles on their abdomens, whereas the small tubercles on most hissers are smooth. Also, from what I've seen, wild grandidieri tend to have noticeably more granulated exoskeletons than other Gromphadorhina, no matter the color. So I'm sorry, but those hissers you have from Jörg almost certainly aren't Gromphadorhina grandidieri, it appears there aren't any real grandidieri in the hobby yet.

    Small sized feeders

    Newborns of little kenyan roaches are very small as well and they've been very prolific for me

    Wow that was fast, thanks a bunch!

    What do you keep your gyna species in?

    Try a gasket tub, those are good and what I'm currently using for my Gyna capucina.
  26. I'm curious as to what i should put my gyna lurida and caffrorum in, as it seems like every container i try to put them in, they always squeeze past the lid and escape.
