    @Forcep hasn't posted on the forum in a few years, but when I checked in with him about the species in 2018, he had sent his colony away to a couple friends. Not sure what the status of this species in the hobby currently is though. Maybe @Hisserdude would know.

    Oh. It's always kind of sad to see people leave such a great hobby.

    I'm not sure on exact species, but the roach in the first picture belongs to the genus Paratropes and the second belongs to Eucorydia. 

    From what I can find, the first one is Paratropes cf. bilunataand the second one is Eucorydia aenea

    No, because I don't think he ever took people's money without delivering the goods... He just preemptively said he was going to bring in these species before he actually tried bringing them in, and apparently somewhere along the line those plans fell apart. 

    Ah ok. As a wise person once told me, "Don't count your cocoons until they are spun."

    Corydidarum sp. "Yunnun is one of the new species I'm importing, I will get you a starter culture of them once my colony establishes, you would be the 3rd person in the world to have them after me 

    Are you planning on selling any of those? This thread is pretty old, but thought I would ask...

    Great question! I too am interested in this.

    I've been curious as to how the pros deal with the gooey innards of larger insects - big hissers, hercules beetles, vinegaroons. I know my hissers start to smell pretty bad after a day or so. It's that something you just have to wait out? Or do you do a taxidermy type thing where you remove the inside and stuff the cavity?

    I use the pin method in case that matters.   

    I just set my hisseers on a shelf for a week or so, near some mothballs, and they flatten out a bit, but seem to dry fine.
