  1. I have a flat horn with my regular hissers and she seems to love heat a little more.
  2. I bred hybrid hisser's solely as pets and it was fun seeing them grow because it was a surprise what they would look like and what traits they would get from each parent. The results surprised me as I bred a dark and light thinking most will be dark, instead most were dark with light colored pattern, I was fascinated with the results!
  3. It almost looks like a different species so cool!
  4. If they still eat decaying items they will most likely smell. Mine smelt and I kept cage rather clean.
  5. Yellow or orange Dubia nymphs have a cute appeal to them, remind me of Isopods.
  6. I think its still growing so colors might change.
  7. Ground beetles here I find eating earthworms.
  8. IF two species can Hybridize and kept in captivity, I think the urge to mate is so strong they will mate with something not of their kind. Take the Liger as an example, that would never happen in the wild. There have been cases of dog/wolf hybrids in the wild but very, very rare because wolves usually kill domestic dogs. It was a rare case a female dog was in heat and lived outside and a lone male wolf who had no pack mated with her but probably only because he was low rank and wanted to start his own pack and that was the only female he could find. It's like the mantids, their kind is always around so hybrids rarely occur, in captivity forced mating putting them together makes it possible.
  9. The pronum has some pattern on it, if we could get a closer view of that it might help.
  10. I've seen them do it, their abdomens make the noise, mabye same way as hisser's do? The smell comes from their abdomen aswell.
  11. I've had mine do that. B. Craniifer also do it.
  12. It might be to tough to eat and chew.
  13. That's exactly what's going on. I have G oblongonata hybrids and pure, yours look exactly like pure stock. Once they eat and fatten up they all look the same.
  14. Can current species sold hybridize? Imagine a red knee mixed with cobalt blue, awesome!
  15. Can't females live 10 years? If your into arachnids this is the site for you http://www.arachnoboards.com/ab/forum.php
  16. I've been here a few years ago and hope to go again. My favorite was the butterfly exhibit.
  17. I'm on iPhone so much and it doesn't show the location? Didn't realize it existed.
  18. It would be nice if under username we see where the user lives, would make it easier for those who buy and also if people need i.d. for cockroach and seeing location helps.
  19. This forum should show user location it would make life so much easier!
  20. I love the photos of the exotic roaches in this thread!
  21. I had this as a kid. Definetly bring in something for them to touch, hissers are good. Mabye emphasize about washing hands after touching. You could say not all cockriaches live in homes like german or american cockroaches. A computer slideshow with pest and colorful exotic roach photos might be worth doing. Also show photo or specimen of blaberus giganteus that will impress too.
