  1. Got the opportunity to draw some of my roaches for a school assignment These are just sketches, but I would love to do some nicely rendered art of them soon. I would love to see more art of bugs while I'm here! If any of y'all wanna share your art here, please do
  2. I've recently obtained pure strains of these MHC species (G. portentosa, G. grandidieri white tiger, P. vanwaerebeki) and plan to obtain (G. oblongonota, E. javanica). My question is: Which of these species can safely be housed together without there being any possibility of hybridization OR harm to adults or nymphs? I already read that the Princisia Giants will hybridize but what about the others?
  3. I got 7 hissers at the beginning of January. If I'm counting/observing correctly, they've since had 4 broods of nymphs. I sold 20 to a kid from craigslist yesterday, but at this rate I'm still going to have a serious population issue in a few months if I'm not proactive. I'm removing the under-tank heater to slow them down a little bit. My plan was to get a carnivorous insect or two, or perhaps a bearded dragon, to help manage the population. According to this thread, they're too tough for most critters to eat. I don't particularly want a lizard big enough to get into fights with my cat.
  4. Not much info on these gorgeous little buddies, beyond comparisons to G. portentosa. I read an article concerning the latter and how they form bonds with individuals that take the time to pet them. They learn the scent, and react hissy towards strangers. I have been bonding with my male daily, leaving the obviously gravid female on her own because i do not want to risk stressing her into miscarrying. I am not sure if he enjoys the light pets i give him, but he has however grown quite tolerant of my affection. At first he never stopped hissing when i touched him, then transitioning into obje
  5. Not affiliated with the zoo... just passing on the info. https://bronxzoo.com/roach
  6. Help with ID? I’m still fairly new to this hobby, and the other day, I was reading up on hisser breeds. I found that my female looks almost nothing like my male, except for the fact that she is definitely a hisser. Could she be the coveted bumpy hisser or am I just getting my hopes up? She is textured as I hope you can see. I bought her at a pet shop as a MHC. My male is definitely a MHC, he fits the bill. He is pretty docile and likes being handled, while she can be somewhat fussy and picky about food but I believe this may just be personality type A Picture of the roaches So

    Selling hissers

    Im selling some hissing roachs. Im just wanting to get rid of some of mine i have way to many. I'll do like $15 for shipping and like $1 per roach.
  8. I'm new to this forum but needed to post this somewhere because to be honest I'm really bamboozled right now. I got my first pet cockroaches about a year ago, two male Madagascar hissers. Last August or so one died, so I went online and ordered 5 more males to keep the survivor company. They sent me 4 males, a female, and a female dubia. I emailed the seller and they were honestly quite amazing, offered to let me ship any females I didn't want for free and send replacement males. Just wanting some pets and not a multiplying colony, I sent back the female hisser but kept the dubia t
