  1. I've got a Tarantula that I caught, so I know how to take care of them. However, I'm thinking about releasing him and buying a captive bred one. I found a Chilean Rose Hair at a local pet store for $20 and I was wondering if that is a fair price for one. And I'd also like to know if there are any specific things I need to look for in this species to make sure it's healthy before I bring it home.
  2. I love these critters. I kept them through a few cycles a while back, and still have the egg-saturated sand packed away somewhere around here. This makes me want to dig it up and start the colony up again. I love how when you don't have time for them anymore, you can just pack them away for a while. haha

    Hissing behaviour of different species?

    Some of my G. Portentosa hiss pretty loudly while others in the colony don't hiss much at all. And my E. Javanica are only 2i still, so I haven't heard any of them hiss yet.

    Yes, those are baby hissers.

    Facebook Roach Club ( For Florida Species )

    I don't live in Florida, but I requested to join the group anyway. I'm interested in at least learning about the species there and laws pertaining to them.

    WC roaches for feeders?

    Most people generally let them breed for a few generations to try to weed out problems like parasites and carried pesticides, I believe.

    Dammit, I was excited for a minute there. haha

    Found another molted rhino today

    I always love seeing a roach post-molt, and these guys look especially cool.

    I'm having forum troubles

    Ok, so whenever soemone attaches an image to a post, all I see are black boxes where the thumbnail should be and there is so link to see the full size image. Here's a screenshot to show you what I see.

    Preserving Roaches?

    Yeah, it's pretty easy to do actually. Here's one of my shadowboxes (all of the critters there were my pets at one point and died of natural causes):

    Is this normal

    Just looks like a discoid with an odd pronotum marking to me.

    Are we the only ones

    I know quite a few people that keep roaches and stuff but are more active on the local southern california invert hobbyist group.

    Hi from So-Cal!

    Yeah, summer gets up to about 105-110. haha. It's nice in the winter, I mean, it's 2pm right now and I'm sitting outside in pants and a t-shirt. lol

    Hi from So-Cal!

    I think you just like Bakersfield because you don't live here. Haha.

    Hi from So-Cal!

    Welcome to the Forum! If I still had any feeder roaches left, I'd offer to drive them down there. Haha. I live in central Cali, but routinely drive to the San Diego area to visit my dad.

    Hisser jousting

    It is a bit entertaining. When I used to have my hisser colony, I would play with the alpha male by pushing on his pronotum with my finger and he'd rear up and push back. It was funny. I wish I'd gotten a video of it.

    G.portentosa and B.giganteus in the same tank?

    It could. The tank I had those two species in was a 20 gallon long aquarium with a screen lid. It had about a dozen individuals of each species and I wanted to get a few AGB millipedes for the tank, but never actually got around to it.

    Therea oothecae hatch time

    Yeah, these guys take forever to hatch. lol

    G.portentosa and B.giganteus in the same tank?

    I used to keep a mixed tank of those two species and they did just fine.

    I'm a nerd.

    That's pretty spiffy.

    Live roach trap, maybe?

    Zephyr, I was just about to post that same link. haha. I've used that trap with pretty good success in the past.

    Therea olegrandjeani

    That's pretty awesome.
