Hi there My name is Alfredo and I'm from Mexico. I'm a photographer and all my whole life I liked insects, especially the cockroaches. Now, currently I post some funny photos of my hissers on Instagram, if you're interested (@apshot) In august 2013 an American Periplaneta adult appeared in my house... Fortunately here it is very clean and almost never appear, so I decided captured it and care of all my love. Since then my passion for blatodeos grew. Oh, yeah, his name is Brody and it's a very cool roach and it has approximately 15 months of age My Hissers: 1 Gromphadorhina Portentosa (Male) 1 Gromphadorhina Oblongonota (Male) 1 "Black" Princisia Vanwaerebeki (Male, I think) Also: 3 Periplaneta Americana ("Brody", 1 very recently captured adult female and a young wingless not afraid of me) 1 German Cockroach (All his family died. His family arrived inside a terrarium for my iguana and I captured all. All died naturally and he was born and raised here) Soon?: Maybe a Death’s Head Cockroach but I never seen before... Or some hissers females for my boys... I don't know.
I found a large P. americana under a tree which near my home yesterday evening. I caught it and put it into a bottle at once. But it refuses to eat any food now. I know it is healthy because it is very smart and can run very fast. I don't know what's wrong with it. Who can tell me what to do? Thanks a lot.
