Acro Posted January 7, 2009 Share Posted January 7, 2009 Hello everybody, I need some help. One of my male hissers began to swell over a period of a few weeks...maybe a month. He was extremely bloated and eventually some of his organs began to pop out of his anus (or maybe those were his sex organs?). He was mobile and willing to feed. But being so huge with difficulty getting around, and having his organs hang out from his body for about a week, he finally died. He was the only male in that setup and none of the females swelled up like he did. Now, next to the dead roaches enclosure, I have a different male with some females and he is starting to inflate! I would like to prevent this roach from dying and I need your thoughts and suggestions as how to help this bug out! I am posting 2 pictures that will show how the dead male looked a few days before his departure. (he had that split segment all his life). Hopefully these pictures will help diagnose the problem. I don't want to lose all my male hissers and I am afraid this may spread! Thanks in advance for the help! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
