Eggcase (1/7)



  1. Oh, the wood i gave them wasnt from the trees we got cut down, it was from some rotten logs down the bush, i guess i'll just stick to that for now.
  2. how long does it need to be rotting? I chucked some rotten bits of wood in and they love them, there is saw dust everywhere from them eating, they have tunneled right through the wood. It should keep them going for a while
  3. we had lots of gum trees cut down a few months back and chipped, the chips have been used to mulch the garden, would that be ok to feed them?
  4. Just got about 17 of these today. Enjoy.
  5. also it may seem a stupid question but to what extent does the wood need to be rotten? Is it the soft wood that falls apart or is that to far gone? What about the wood debris from termites?
  6. i live in australia. The species i think is Panesthia australis. If this lot fails i will get more and try a different setup but hopefully the first time works. I got them this morn so will get some pics.
  7. also if anyone keeps them housing pics would be great
  8. a few guys i know have been finding roaches, pretty sure they are all Panesthia sp. Can someone tell me how to keep these guys? Housing, food etc. Cheers
  9. I'm actually trying to get a colony of Ellipsidion australe going. They are local to my area but hard to find, so far only have 1 but should find more. I agree it would be alot more exciting to raise a colony from just a few individuals than from a few hundred.
  10. I was looking on a site ages ago but cant remember it but it had pics of a roach that rolls into a ball much like a pill millipede for defence. Any idea what genus they are in?
  11. make sure when feeding eucalypt to your Macropanthesia you are not feeding the strongly scented types to them.
  12. thats about as good as i can get, my camera isnt the best for marco. Altho i can take one at higher resolution and crop it for you.
  13. if i lose a specimen will send it to the local museum.
