Any non-skittish, non-shy roaches?

Recommended Posts

Not quite enjoying my motionless pantanal enclosure, hoping the adults will be more active once they molt. Any species that don't run and hide at the slightest movement? In case you wondered, pantanal can see red lights.

Hmmm, maybe hissers? Any of the Therea species? Blaberus would probably make great display species as well.

Hissers. Each individual is different, but a lot of them are like, ... it, I aint skeered. Many will eat from your hands too after being picked up.

I've heard peppered roaches are very calm as well. I suspect that many larger species are calmer.

Hissing Cockroach, they never hiss at me and let me "pet" them

Thank you guys, I got some E. Javanica and love them. I got to watch one molt into an adult, and last night it was a swarm on the orange slice.
