  1. Stagnant humidity will result in somewhat slow die-off. It is a very hardy species so I'm not sure what your problem could be.
  2. They hatch when they are warmed up, usually about three weeks but faster or slower depending on the age of the ootheca and the specific "warm" and "cold." Just makes sure you have some fruit fly cultures thriving and a good cage design. On that note that caging and misting may be a little different in the spring than winter because the moisture in the air is higher (in spring).
  3. They can be a lot bigger but it is not always easy to raise a major male.
  4. The picture certainly looks like a stock of javanica gets almost as large as "normal" hissers. I would prefer to see vernier calipers or at least a roach sitting on the measuring tape but it doesn't look like a camel spider, centipede, or fish photo where the reference changes the visible size. Chimera - Have you considered Lucihormetica verrucosa? They have a lot of variation and are moderately big.
  5. Wow!
  6. Sorry, I don't have that species currently. I still have my tiger hissers from the 1990's and the portentosa from earlier. The oblongonota did well for a few years and then slowly died out. That's very cool, I didn't think any normal libraries had a copy of any of them. They're POD books measured in the hundreds at most.
  7. Bug 1975
  8. If you put bark angled against the side you can see them all the time if it is the only good shelter.
  9. I would think he's new and the other one doesn't yet know he's competition.
  10. Lubbers are relatively simple, there are some articles on keeping them in older invert-mags. However, Brachystola aren't easy to get hatchlings from.
  11. My biggest display tank is for Blaberus giganteus and I have seen some fantastic massive displays for this species at insect zoos.
  12. Location: in a soft log, solid log, tree hole, compost pile, mulch, soil
  13. Pictures don't always work but the location (food preference) can be used to identify most.
  14. The list of species includes experiences with a few Panesthia species in addition to Macropanesthia but does not go into detail on panesthiinae taxonomy or list every species and subspecies. The table of contents is not broken down into genera or subfamilies.
  15. maybe six months
