Eggcase (1/7)



  1. Alright so I want to make a fancy mix for my dubias and hissers that i will be able to put in a freezer for storage. I made a mix last night consisting of a very small amount of crushed cat-food and fish flakes, small amount of banana and cucumber, orange bell pepper, small amount of clementine, broccoli, peas, corn, iceberg lettuce, and carrots. I really love preparing meals for vegetarian animals for some reason, I love feeding our sulcata at my animal science class. Now I want to have a massively varied and healthy diet, both to benefit them and to in the far future benefit my Varanus rudicolis. What sorts of fruits and veggies can I give them for a mix that will have a wide variety of vitamins/nutrients? Also what foods would you not recommend?
  2. I'm thinking I will house the species separately.
  3. Also why did it look like two of my males were bumbing uglies?
  4. By adding vertical height I meant by adding more climbing space via egg cartons, wood, etc. I think I might simply put the madagascars in a 10 gal instead if I get them to prevent them from eating the young dubias when they come.
  5. And heres the other pic - Also what is the best commercial diet to feed them?
  6. So yesterday I bought 20 adult Dubia roaches for $20 and I am wondering if it is possible/safe to house Madagascar hissing roaches with these Dubias? I ask because if I continue to add a lot of vertical space I could hold a ton more roaches and can probably get the same deal on the hissers as I did on the dubias. They have repti-bark for substrate, and I have an undertank heating pad underneath and plan to keep the surface temp in the cage around 80 F. Heres two pics of their set-up -
  7. I hope I find her before its too late There isn't really any places I can get hissers easily and I'm trying to slowly(very slowly) get a colony started so I can feed my black roughneck monitor without having to buy annoying and stinky crickets. I've started to rather like my roaches....
  8. Okay thats good to know. So there is no way she could be a problem? I would really like to find her...
  9. Well what I am worried about is if she is already gravid? What is she has her young in the house?
  10. Hey everyone, I'm new here and joined because in need Help finding a lost roach. The roach I lost was one of my female Madagascar hissing roaches about week ago and I am very concerned I will not find her. I don't know if she is gravid or not. I tore the room she was lost in apart everyday for three days and did not find her. I checked everywhere I could including under picture frames on the wall. I also put magazines on the floor around the room hoping she might try and take cover under one. My dad is pretty upset there is a roach in the house and I nearly had a panic attack when I found she was missing. I want to find her alive but we put a few glue traps in the room where it is dark hoping she would get stuck to one . If we have an infestation because of my stupidity I will hate myself.
