Peter Clausen Posted March 31, 2011 Share Posted March 31, 2011 Blaptica dubia cockroaches are one of the most important feeder species in the hobby due to their fast reproduction rates. After giving birth, the mother in this video entrusted another female to watch over her young. Watch as the stand-in defends the newborns from the "attacks" of my finger. I can already hear the PETR(oaches) people getting upset, but the point of this video is to highlight some of the interesting social behaviors that make cockroaches such interesting pets (and despite their popularity as a feeder roach for tarantula and reptile hobbyists).
