  1. I like to grind cat food for my roaches, mix with ground cereal, baby food,brewer's yeast and chick feed. Cat food is high in protein but when mix with other food you get lower % of protein. I don't buy cheap cat food anymore, I get those with special blend of grains, fruits. Just found out last cat food I bought was different. I give them apple or oranges, sometimes green vegetables.
  2. 300 new species found in Philippines wonder if roaches are included on their discovery. Always ask myself about this and why I'm excited to go on vacation. http://news.yahoo.com/inflatable-shark-among-300-species-discovered-philippines-135007930.html;_ylt=AulwD5vKb5JXJfAxZjV20NSs0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTNwbnFpdnBqBGNjb2RlA3dlaWdodGVkY3QEcGtnAzNhMjc1ZWZhLTc3NzUtMzIwYS1iYTdkLTk5NWFjOWZhZmMzMQRwb3MDMgRzZWMDbW9zdF9wb3B1bGFyBHZlcgM0ZThiYjdkYS1hMTA2LTExZTAtYTRiMy03OGU3ZDE1ZmQ2MGM-;_ylg=X3oDMTFpNzk0NjhtBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdANob21lBHB0A3NlY3Rpb25z;_ylv=3
  3. This forum is great, got me back to roach hobby and thanks to Zephyr got a great deal.
  4. I wish I have a real macro lens, I used a 28-75mm lens with a multiplier glass filters, covered the flash with a piece of translucent plastic and plastic cap (pringles) to diffuse the flash. Pictures were cropped. Acquired these roaches from Zephyr except the peppered roaches came from two sources if I remember it right. I like the E. pantanal too. that's how my collection grew looking at the pictures posted on this forum....
  5. Finally got couple of new batteries for my camera. Here are some pix. E.posticus E.pantanal P.nivea E.distanti B.fusca A.tesselata
  6. Thanks! Are you also a Filipino? Yes, Kabayan ... Born in Nueva Ecija, Cenral Luzon
  7. Good job hunting man.... Making me excited to go home for a vacation . That's a nice color hope those 3 will breed for you..
  8. What kind of photo editing software you have? I always resize my pictures to 700 pixels.
  9. I think they don't bite wings like orange heads. Half of my culture matured and seems like they are all male or maybe I got it wrong how to sex B. fusca.
  10. A lady who love dart frogs too gave me some of these and now it flourished. I had Armadillidium vulgare in Los Angeles but didn't know how to take care them at that time.
  11. I got some baby mantises. I found a praying mantis in our backyard last fall I never thought they can survive the dry heat here in Las Vegas, kept it and feed it with crickets she produced 2 egg cases then died. I lost hope but still keep misting the container well got blessed tonight. I will take pictures when they are big enough or if they survive.
  12. I would say you get respected here. No egomaniacs yet .
  13. Thanks for the deal. I left a feedback on Orin too and I didn't know you're just making a note on different specimen. Anyway he get credits. Godspeed.

  14. I find tarantulas hard to take care. I've lost A. geniculata, L. parhibana, B. albopilosa, B. vagans, B. smithi, B. auratum, T. pruriens, H. lividum. Chilean rose is an exception my female lasted 7 yrs I acquired her as an adult. She produced 2 eggsacs.
  15. Lucky! You are. I have to behave most of the time, my wife really don't like roaches where we came from they are pests.
  16. Almost forgot be careful hunting Makoygaara, there are poisonous snakes out there specially Philippine cobra "Ulupong". and Yes that's why I don't like snakes.
  17. Good luck searching makoygaara. Maybe you can ask someone who's local there they can catch one for you, I know there is always someone will be happy to do it for you if you can buy them lunch or dinner. I hope I can go home next year, planning on bringin' lots of plastic container . Sounds like you're in Laguna or maybe Baguio?, I've been to Splash mountain were there are lush forest nearby. I have a friend in Munoz, Nueva Ecija who's a Professor I believe he studied zoology & ecology but I don't think he's into entomology in fact never heard someone who's a entomologist, you know how it is, Philippine government don't fund or maybe there's a thought but don't have enough funds cause most politicians are corrupt.
