    Domino Roaches Missing Legs

    I think the nibbling legs may just be engrained in their behavior, especially when they see a freshly molted soft limb. The odd wings though, I suspect it’s inbreeding. This particular one died on me, so it may have had internal abnormalities as well. Best of luck with your Dominos!

    Interesting! I don't have any adult females at all currently anyway, so I guess I won't be able to anyway!

    I have yet to get a female like this to pair him with! It would be interesting to see how the babies turn out.

    I don’t happen to live near a nuclear facility lol! There is one other adult with a slightly unusual pattern, but not this unusual!

    Domino Roaches Missing Legs

    Hi Hisserdude, Sorry for the late reply, haven’t been on here in forever! There is usually condensation on the top of the container, so it’s fairly moist in there! I’ve just kind of accepted that a few tarsi will be missing.

    Domino Roaches Missing Legs

    Thanks for your reply! They have a sea sponge that’s soaking wet in their food bowl. They always have oak leaves and almost always have something else to eat like oats, berries, squash, grapes, tomatoes. I’ve seen even the smaller ones get into the food bowl, so I doubt they’re having trouble getting into it. My adult is a female who has laid about 5 ootheca, not sure of her age though. The younger ones have a bunch of limb segments missing too though....

    Domino Roaches Missing Legs

    Hi all, My domino roach colony is doing pretty well, but I keep finding legs missing on a lot of them, even adults. Are they munching on each other? How can I prevent this, I almost always have water and food in their cage.
  11. Hi all, I'm new to roach keeping and one of my little Domino nymphs died for no apparent reason. It looked like it had a small amount of prolapse before it died. I keep them at room temperature, they have coconut husk and oak leaves and a water sponge and a food dish with a steady supply of fruits and veggies. I did try to get them to drink water the other day and a few passed out and then revived because they must have gotten water in their spiracles. Does anyone else have experience with them? Thanks for your replies!
