Nymph (2/7)



  1. Of course I do! Also I will try to cross them with the white eye morph and call them 'Venom' from Spiderman.
  2. Hi Guys, long time I write here. Let me post some interesting pics. There is a 13 years old Periplaneta americana colony. And suddenly a black color morph showed up! Here are some pictures: http://imageshack.us...9/5586/biie.jpg http://imageshack.us...1/4461/ni4r.jpg I do not know are there any possibilities that they are hybrids or not. Let's start the discuss. They are our roaches of course. Regards, Shipi
  3. I think the name is somewhere in the page. I don't remember.
  4. http://www.nhm.ac.uk/nature-online/science-of-natural-history/science-at-the-museum/our-global-reach/map.html I hope it's working now.
  5. I know only one wild hisser video. Just click on the southern part of Madagascar. What an expedition! http://www.nhm.ac.uk/nature- online/science-of-natural-history/ science-at-the-museum/our-global- reach/map.html Regards, Shipi
  6. I just woke up and the first thing I did in the morning was checking the craniifers. I found 5 dead adults (3 males, 2 females). I don't see any parasites on them. I'm gonna make some autopsy asap.
  7. So you tell me they must to be keep in 90 F degrees not lower? I give it a try, thanks!
  8. Hi guys, I have the similar problem with craniifers. Mines, by the way sometimes dying right after the last molt but I found many specimen dead with hardened exoskeleton. I keep them on room temperature with very good ventilation (same like other colonies) and they eat the very same food as the others. I give them cucumbers, apples, dried bun and dry cat food for protein. The substrate is aprox. 5 cm deep (barely 2 inches). It's a mix of coconut fiber and universal plant soil. They have nothing else in the 45 liter IKEA container. Every other colonies are absolutely fine. It is really embarrassing. I found an average 3-4 dead adults every day. I cannot find any parasites so I do not know what could be the problem. Their number is aprox. 200-300 maybe but I'm not sure. And the nymphs are fine too. Can someone help me? Shipi P.s.: I'm going to rehouse them without substrate so I can monitoring better dying. What do you think?
  9. I thought about it too, but I am afraid of a bacterial infection.
  10. Here is a link with an article about E. floridana mating behavior. As I remember you can find some information about grooming in it. I hope this will be usefull. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/psyche/1968/035721/abs/
  11. Mold spores are everywhere. Try to circulate the air maybe that could help. I use springtails and isopods to keep clean the bids so I do not have any mold problem. Only mites...
  12. I do not know what is mobile home. But in my opinion, just keep them outside on that climate what you found them and they will be good.
  13. Congratulations! Now you have to save money for Children's Day.
  14. I just heard them to snuff when chase each other. Maybe it's the part of the mating. However it was unsuccessful.
  15. In my opinion they have a very pleasant odor. I love to smell them when I open the cage. By the way, I have a little more than 50 specimen, so I am very curious how will they smell when I get 300. About the article, I cannot read it. :S But it seems interesting. Never mind, I've figured it out! Just saw the PDF button.
