Although these little guys get a pretty bad rep for being culture-jumpers, I think every roach keeper should have a colony of them.

You can always keep them in a 32 ounce plastic cup with teeny, tiny holes poked in the top. :)

For all their horrible productiveness, I think it's pretty cool how half the nymph is shiny and the rest is matte.

Neat! The only experience I have with this sp. is collecting them wild out of an island in the Bahamas (they seem to get along with ants very well by the way). Do the adults dig under the substrate or run… in, oh, let’s say a feeding situation? I’ve been thinking about getting a culture of these to use as a feeder for some of my Ts and such.

I like the newly molted individual in photo #1, it’s like a really odd Where’s Waldo puzzle.

They are definitely diggers. My clawed frogs don't mind. :P
