Hi

Your dwarf hisser looks like Elliptorhina javanica (and not E. chopardi) to me ;) .

Maybe you should check out whether your new cam has also a flash *smile*.

these are some shots of our hisser colony at work that i take care of. it always amazes me on the color variations in the hissers there, i'd actually like to hear what people think about that to be honest.

Do they breed easy?

Yeah, about 20-90 babies every 2-4 months :)

A hobby species... your mantis can eat the babies, though :D

Nice pic! I just checked this morning to find that I have a fresh adult female Discoid. It scared me half to death to see that skin, I thought it was a dead roach. :o I am new at this, and only have 4 so I am still a little worried about them. :rolleyes: That skin looks very neat, my Discoid skin was slightly shredded at the opening. I am used to mantids, and their sheds are mostly transparent, I guess that is why I had to take a second look, before I realised that something good happened. :lol:

Do you think interbreeding did this (If so, Good Job, Interbreeding!)?

Roaches are build for inbreeding, it has no negative effects like it would on humans. You can start out with a colony of one male and one female that could eventually grow into the thousands.
