Update

Recommended Posts

got a few new species recently from Kyle <3.

fusca - dusky cave roach

B.cabrerai - striped burrowing roach

Panchlora sp. - giant banana roach

A.insignis - flat horn hisser pairI

lol *runs to room with sweet pepper bag*. My Tesselata's are doing great! After adjusting the husbandry a bit they are molting into robust vibrant adults with lovely wings. Waiting for two nymphs to grow into a big sweet colony is slow and exciting! I would def reccomend.

The new roaches arived and I come to a realization that I'm a space case and had nothing ready. *runs to walmart,busts out rotozip,glue gun,screen,scissors,vasaline,egg flats,mulch,moss*

Hanging out at the Expo with my Son . Not vending this show just visiting.....little ones can't resist tiny turtles. It will be a shame if they actually suscesfully ban selling these profitable gems!

Great photos! Note to self, DON'T eat the peppers! :P my female G. Oblongata could be larger than your male I keep meaning to post a photo. It's so hard with kids because they want everything but don't know animals actually need our help to live but when a kid is old enough to start helping care for a pet it really shows great responsibility and companionship.

is that packing tape barrier on the roach bin ? I swore hissers can climb all over it , perhaps I'm wrong .... I've been thinking about starting a hisser species collection myself.

yup clear packing tape....as you can see they are all haulted at the start of it lol. Then there is a layer of vaseline above that. It helps emensly .... but those little fucks tend to escape still every now and then.

Can you measure that big male G.Oblongata? Are your males heavier and bigger than your females? Mine are.

I thought selling freshwater turtles (e.g., red-eared slider) was already illegal. Educate me please!! : )

If your selling them with a disclaimer claiming they are for educational purposes then I do believe it's still legal.....They are trying to take away that privilege . So much for education hahahaha. I will get the finer details at the next swap! I shall measure that boy today. I do believe that pair just had their first batch of nymphs <3

The nymphs are pretty cute. Could you post pictures of your other 3 species? Best of luck with all of them. Your sons cute also.
