  1. You've seen all my stuff, Roman... lol
  2. I don't know of any foods that are safe for humans but not roaches... I might be wrong though. I regularly feed goldfish flakes, old fruit from the fridge, and cat kibble. I mist them every couple of days as well
  3. I am sorry if I am breaking the rules by self promoting, but I started a facebook page that will be following a new project of mine "The T'ranch Ranch" It is a project aimed at educating people on tarantulas and other "creepy crawlies". I encourage you to please "like" my page as it will help with getting my crowd funding campaign seen. I will also be breeding T's and roaches for donation to schools, groups, and some retail outlets. Any proceeds would directly back into the ranch. Thanks for you consideration! -rockpython Scott's T'Ranch Ranch
  4. Lol... I certainly don' t have the largest... Between all species, I'd say it's around 600 (99% dubia)

  7. I was thinking what loosey said. They are easily enough bred... Give him 100 and cut him off.
  8. You could stretch nylons over the top, then close the ventilated lid.
  9. I throw maple in with all if mine (just for looks, really) and they slowly disappear.
  10. Woot! That's a nice one! Hybrids may be "bad" for some, but those cool patterns are cool by me!
  11. Well, rip, mildred may... you were a fantastic bug. May your babies live long and prosper.
  12. Sorry... That sucks major donkey balls. Losing ANY animal sucks, and losing a rehab sucks even more!
  13. They probably will eat the wood they are in. As far as reproduction, I am not sure. I have never tried, but from my research, some do well in captivity and some do not. As RomanBuck said, try to reproduce the environment as much as possible.
  14. I am sorry I don't know what it is, but it looks dang cool! Id treat it like any other pede, moist eco earth, wood chips, and fed fruit and fish food.
  15. I have never seen on here in Minnesota. Is there any "special" places they hang out? Are they strictly water bound or are they similar to water bugs in their ability to move from a body of water to another via flight?
  16. He just means the "fun" is getting adults. I'd be in for buying some off you when you get extras!
  17. This has been about a year, it has about 15 (and two male dubia) in it now. They don't really touch the plants and I ALWAYS have goldfish food available to them and supplement with fresh foods. Numbers are controlled by giving away/feeding off extras
