  1. I never got mine to reproduce successfully, but that was a while ago. That's the only experience I can share.
  2. I'm doing this with my stock as well. Interestingly, no colorful males have appeared, only female.
  3. The first looks to me like Eurycotis sp., a bit like E. opaca (one species I've seen before). The others, I have no idea.
  4. Awesome millipede you found there. Looks like the "fire legged" (or whatever) that I sometimes see for sale online.
  5. Very funny saying, but not scientifically accurate. I'll have to use this one
  6. What a fantastic animal. Whenever I think of egg-eaters, I picture the brown/olive-colored species, so it's nice to see one that's a little bit more colorful and patterned.
  7. Or lab specimens from a local pest control research facility (or really any sort of research facility- roaches are great subjects).
  8. He/she is probably just a little bit flustered, or maybe not hungry at all. Allow it to settle in and then offer food again later.
  9. This is a different image than what I saw, but even in this one, there's actually a lobster. Upper right quadrant. I think my eyes are magnetic to lobsters or something, because I saw that one almost immediately
  10. I like the one Lobster roach (or maybe H. flexivitta?) dead center of the picture. Thanks for sharing.
  11. This is so amazing! What exactly do you have these for? Pets? Do you work at an aviary/raptor sanctuary?
  12. I wouldn't risk it; the fungus which makes them glow is likely at least semi-specific to them and their environment. Experimenting in captivity is possible, but these guys don't reproduce all that easily or quickly from what I've heard (I had a few but they all died), so I wouldn't risk feeding them some random species of bioluminescent fungi to get them to glow.
  13. I agree with Ralph. It's much more darkly colored than the average surinamensis.
  14. Those are so awesome! Wish we had those where I live.
  15. Cockroaches do not "learn". Whatever this is is likely a natural, genetic response to inter-species competition and/or predation from similar-sized organisms.
  16. Beautiful pictures. They really bring out the reds/maroons.
  17. Roaches, like any other organism, can very well carry disease. I believe this statement refers to the spread of disease from roaches to humans, refuting the idea that roaches are disgusting disease vectors. However, roaches can still very well spread disease within their own populations, and that would most likely be very problematic for the ecosystem. Euthanize your roaches; never release.
  18. These are awesome. Kinda wish I had native roaches around me.
  19. Welcome Enjoy yourself.
  20. Looks like prolapse, which I know basically nothing about.
