    I think strawberry leaves can be feed because it's the same family as bramble and I hear from many people they feed bramble leaves and they like it. I would also try to give them strawberry leaves I just sowing some species of strawberrie so I can use the leaves on the end of the year.
  2. Hi Matt K, I think they get enough different feed I give them standard dry feed (cruched dog feed) and every 2 day's a other fresh fruit like : Orange Bananas Appels so I think this must enough for them

  17. Hi all, I'm Tom van der Ende from The Netherlands 36 years old I do some work for Museums here in the Netherlands and with the University I’m new inside the cockroaches hobby I have now 24 years experience with scorpions of the genus Tityus also from South America. Because I was looking for roaches from the same area as my scorpions for food I found Firefly Schultesia lampyridiformis and Lobster Roach Henschoutendenia flexivitatta what I use as food now. Also I saw roaches of the genus Lucihormetica they are beautiful. So I started searching for Lucihormetica species and I register myself as member of the Blattodea Culture Group (BCG) and I come in contact with the person who described Lucihormetica grossei. Now I have 3 Lucihormetica species: Lucihormetica subcincta Lucihormetica verrucosa Lucihormetica grossei Greetings from The Netherlands My website: Http://www.scorpiology.com Http://www.tityus.eu
