Blaberus ID

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Here a picture of a Blaberus sp. I got today from a Dutch Zoo for so far they know it's a pure strain wild captured form who can tell me what species this is ??? Locality unknown

So you mean to say that the zoo did not have any documentation from whom they acquired it from and when? If they think its pure strain and wild caught, then they must have something to base that idea on.

The Zoo got this species 12 years ago. It came with a shipment from South America which was intercepted at the time by the customs. The zoo keeper from then has retired and at one point in the last years they lost the papers.

It looks a lot like Blaberus fusca, which may or may not be a valid species. About how big is it?
