Scuttling in from the Mantidforum!


Recommended Posts

Hello! I decided to make an account after I started collecting several different species of roaches for feeder variety. I own a small collection of mantises and like to feeder them roaches (even though they suck at catching them sometimes). Dubias are my favorite though since they're slow and cannot climb smooth surfaces. I was introduced to just how fast lobster roaches are and it was not fun trying to them in their container. I do have two dubias (male and female) that I purchased and have yet to sacrifice out of some fondness. They're the largest ones I have and I occasionally like to race them. Not that it works since they just run in different directions and I get yelled at for playing with roaches.

Thanks! I've been thinking about getting a hissing cockroach as a pet although they're a low priority. Currently I am drowning in mantises and trying to keep them from eating cotton ( I have one that likes to grab onto her cotton pad and eat it when I change them out). I have to wrestle an inch mantis for cotton.

Welcome to the unloved mantis forum! (referring to the close relation of cockroaches and mantids and lack of general appreciation for blattids)
