Looking for a youtube video of dubia roach birthing and shielding her babies from human finger

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I remember seeing a video on youtube about a year ago where a dubia roach was seen giving birth and kinda acted like a shield for her babies when the person taking the video tried moving the roach after the process, but I can't seem to find it again. Does anybody know it? It would be great if I can find it again just to see this behavior again!

A few more details: I think there were two people off screen, a father and a daughter. I distinctly remember the female roach squirting some kind of fluid out a couple seconds after delivering all the babies and the babies rushing over to feed. The father was astonished, saying something among the lines of "I can't believe it, she's feeding them!"
