Japanese roach pages

I was rummaging around looking for information on Aeluropoda insignis (they're so awesome!) and this site popped up. After running it through the translator I found that they keep many roach species and have tons of pictures. It's a great site to browse through and has some valuable information. Sorry if this ends up being repost, I did my best to try and search out anything similiar on this forum.

Here's the google translated link (don't know if it'll work correctly for long):

The original site untranslated:

It seems like, just as with G. portentosa, G. oblongonata, etc, there is a large variant of A. insignis. It probably exists in the US stock but I'd assume it just hasn't shown up/been isolated yet.

There are alot of interesting Japanese bug websites, roaches, beetles, stick insects, and more- the Japanese find the bugs we call illegal amusing as pets. It also seems that most invertebrates are legal in Japan.

As for the insignis, when you get a large enough colony of them going you certainly find "interesting" variations.

Male actually! <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" />

I'm hoping he'll mate with all the ladies so his genes will become more prominent. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I know it's a while's back, but did it turn out?

I sorta goofed up. I still have trouble telling the difference between mature and immature female A. insignis. I accidentally put already fertilized females in with him, and they gave birth. I'll just put those all back into the original colony and take out some half-grown females to grow for him. :P
