Good morning everyone. 😛 

I've decided to start up a photo thread on my cockroach collection in its entirety here after finally learning how to easily share pictures thanks to the one and only, @Hisserdude. I'll go ahead and get things rolling with the current crowning jewel of my collection, my smallish nymph pair of Rhinoceros Roaches, Macropanesthia rhinoceros. :)

I’m pretty sure your pycnoscelus are trying to spell something out for you in the substrate....but it appears to be in Thai letters lol

Luckily they know one thing outside of Thai - 2019. 😛

How's it going everyone? 🙂 

Long time no post! School has finally swept past me once again for this year and so my focus can now shift back to the roaches (as if it wasn't already somewhat lol). I plan to get the photoshoots going soon so I can get some more pictures slapped up here and build up this thread. However, one development in my collection that there's no need waiting to supply pictures for is that I'm now officially hisserless! 😮 The allergies were just getting too bad for me and I wasn't doing particularly great with the species I had, so I just decided to sell them all off to a trusted breeder ( @Bmaines96). Even though this is technically supposed to be a thread representing my current collection,  I say why not share some pictures here of some absolutely gorgeous roaches I may never own again. 🙂

Here it goes:

Besides these two hisser species, I also had Gromphadorhina oblongonota, but unfortunately didn't manage to get pictures of them before shipping them away. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed what I did have to show and be sure to stay tuned for more pictures from my drastically-enlarged collection!

Aww man, sorry to hear about that, but hopefully the allergies to your roaches will go away now that you've got no hissers! :) I'm sure they're in good hands with Brandon.

I can only hope! Maintenance time has already gotten very noticeably less itchy, sneezy, and 200% more enjoyable, so things are definitely looking up. :) The only other potential problem ones I think I have are Blaberus, but I'm still reluctant to give most of those up (especially the B.colosseus "Peru" I just got a few months ago lol). 

Oh, I'm certain of it. :)

That's good to hear, and hopefully with the hissers gone, your reaction to the Blaberus will eventually dissipate! :)

Absolutely beautiful collection you've got! How was your one poor roach shipped by usps? :'D I would hope they respect the "live animal" labels plastered across crates and such, but I know how some facilities can be >:[

Thank you! When my shipment of that species entered transit, it stayed there for around 2 weeks for some reason before finally being delivered to my house. It was one of the few really bad experiences I've had with USPS, but even though they were Ectobiids (which are typically much more fragile than other roaches), they all arrived alive. :)
