Around 5 days ago, I awoke to find my beloved MHC, Oswald, lying in his back in his cage and very sluggish when picked up. That day, he began to heave as though he was going to molt. I waited as the days passed by, but he has not heaved anymore and is not very sluggish anymore either. I’m very new to keeping pet roaches, he is my only one, so is this normal? He looks to be full grown, I was very surprised when I thought he was going to molt. I will attach a picture of him for reference.

Well he's definitely mature, so he shouldn't molt again. Not sure what was going on but it sounds like he's back to normal at least. May have just fallen on his back and tired himself out trying to flip himself over.

Yeah, I think that was probably the case. Still not sure why he was heaving, but I’m just glad he’s doing well now. Thank you!
