Chris Driggers Posted July 31, 2007 Share Posted July 31, 2007 I grew up in Central Alabama and have lived here most of my 27 years. I, as well as most other kids here, was taught from a young age that anything that's not a dog or a cat is bad. Well something didn't seem right about that, and I was always catching something and bringing it home, whether it be snakes, lizards, beetles, roaches, crawfish, spiders, scorpions. It wasn't until about 4 years ago that I found out that there were other peple who liked roaches and that I wasn't weird after all(well by the standards that I was thinking anyway). I got my first starter colony from Wade Harrel as a freebie when I ordered a 2 T-shirts and some tarantula spiderlings. Those 2 dozen E. prosticus grew into an addiction when I saw how quickly they produced once I had a couple hundred adults. I got them originally to use the offspring as feeders for my scorpions, tarantulas and lizards. I did feed some off, but I had to have more. At one time I was keeping 12 species of roaches. I am now down to 2 species, both are feeder colonies. I am looking to add some collector roaches to the collection now. Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
