  1. hi! Lucihormetica verrucosa: young: female: males (variable wings colours, note that some have yellow dots and others are white!): bye!
  2. they can't climb, and they burrow. I breed a small group at the moment, they are nearly always under the ground!
  3. Hi! here are some Hemiblabera brunneri adults and babies: male: female: bye!
  4. just peel the fruits, so that you'll throw the wrong stuff away
  5. they are actually more yellow, but the pictures aren't good enough :/
  6. The first generation born in captivity are nearly all adults, all the males looks like this one (last segment of the abdomen are a bit darker on the F1 generation than on the WC male), the females are nearly all the same too (a few variation is possible, lighter or darker than the one on the picture). I was surprised when I saw the young males becoming adults and looking exactly like their father! I don't know how they brougt them from Madagascar to Belgium, but since they are a museum they are probably allowed to import' those kind of species. They are allowed to give/exchange them (and maybe sell them, but I'm not sure) to the public, it's more common with phasmids and snails, those roaches are actually in a room impossible to access for the general public. I had the chance to have a friend working there, and intersting animals to exchange. I've visited those privates rooms and could exchange my animals against those roaches
  7. Hi here are some Gromphadorhina portentosa, the adults are wild caught, from Masoloa in Madagascar! youngs: female: male: bye!
  8. hi! So, I get some roaches from the insectarium Jean Leclerc a while ago... They were labelled "Gromphadorhina oblongonata" and were imported from the Ranomafana area. They took nearly one year to get the first babies, and I tought that the males weren't adult because they were so small... But they were actually adult! I really think that the identification is incorrect, but I'll keep that name until a real identification is done... So, here are my Gromphadorhina cf. oblongonata "Ranomafana": babies: females: black thorax border: males: the lighter one: the other ones are darker: bye!
  9. this is why it's labelled Gromphadorhina cf. grandidieri... They were verified by a friend who was working at J'ean Leclercs'insectarium, but I still have some doubts... I'm sent some pictures to Georges Beccaloni and I'm waiting for his answer to be sure of what they are
  10. ArtBug, when the males are immature, the horns are really small, and some adults males show smalls horns as well. To know the sex, you can look between the roach, the last segment is larger when it's a female. Exemple with Archimandrita tesselata, male on the left, female on the right: SLE18, I'm quiet sure that this specie needs males and females to get babies
  11. Hi! Gromphadorhina cf. grandidieri "black": babies: some diferent colors: female: an other one, a bit more red: alpha male: his horns: bye!
  12. Hi here are my Eublaberus posticus! young: male: female and male bye!
  13. "futtermix" are probably hybrids, it's the case on Jörg Bernhardt website
  14. Maybe some of you spotted it, I made a mistake in the title: it's Euvlaberus distanti
  15. hi! here are some pics of Eublaberus distanti: male: female: nymph: bye!
  16. yes, as it's the case fo many insects, the males need less time to reach adulthood
