  1. Many Carabids will actually feed on fruits when given opportunity. My Calosoma scrutator and Galerita sp. often fed on banana to the point where their stomachs will become thrice the size of their original size. lol
  2. Oh wow! P. japonica! I used to find those at my uncle's house when I was in Korea. It's really cool to know that this species can now be collected in the US. I look forward to getting some of these if anyone gets a chance to collect and breed them
  3. This species is actually from Belize (there were also pics from other people in Belize depicting same species so I guess these are native to that place). I think the person who commented on that pic didn't know what species he had in his house.
  4. Any update on these guys? They look so cute!
  5. When I first received my hissers (G. portentosa), one of the specimen bit me hard while I was taking pics of him on my hand. It didn't draw any blood but it did hurt more than I expected. He probably thought that my finger was a food. lol
  6. The most common species of Parcoblatta in my area. An adult male molted yesterday Anyone keeping this species right now, please post your pics on this topic.
  7. Yep. It's a variation of german roaches that has been selectively bred for this trait in lab for couple of generations and there is one more person I know who keeps germans here, Kyle! lol
  8. Variation among nymphs. This is a highly variable species with colors ranging from black to light golden brown.
  9. More pics of the uhleriana male from previous pics. Specimen has changed in color from bright orange to brown+orange
  10. Glad to see another person from AL I'm located in Montgomery so I'm assuming you aren't too far away from my place. Hoping to buy some insects from you in the future.
  11. Specimen in the picture is the only adult I have right now. Rest are nymphs so I don't know how variable mine will be. Apparently, these guys can vary a lot in their spot patterns on their wings so I'm expecting mine to be highly variable too.
  12. They have been very easy to care for for the past few months. Nymphs seem to love burrowing into wood substrates I've given
  13. Thank you I totally agree with you on that they are really beautiful as teneral specimens. Those water bottles are for my roaches and beetles. LOL
  14. Gorgeous species I received from my friend in Maryland. Got them as medium sized nymphs and now, they are turning into adults
  15. Now that I think about it, I only have a single adult female for now and rest of them are subadult nymphs (with the exception of one adult male that emerged few days ago) so that might be why I don't see any aggressions yet.
  16. I definitely need them for comparisons because the ones you have looked somewhat different from mine. I'm not sure if it has to do with variation but I would like to compare yours with mine to see the difference Mine are surprisingly calm toward each other. I have seen some aggressions during feeding time but other than that, they have been nice to each other.
  17. There are some similarities but they are very distinctive from each other
  18. Turned out this species was P. fulvescens
  19. I totally agree. Leaves and woods aren't the requirements for breeding this species as they do fine with fish flakes and fruits. Some species in this genus seem to prefer dry habitat. My first P. lata culture I had, for example, got wiped out when I kept them too damp. The ones I kept in dry habitat did fine though.
  20. Strategus splendens Strategus antaeus Strategus aloeus
