macbrush Posted August 21, 2011 Share Posted August 21, 2011 Just saw a Elliptorhina chopardi molting, then after he's somewhat harden up enough to move around, he started eating an shed exoskeleton left there by another roach a few days ago. I read somewhere they would only eat their own shell, seems that although they're just programmed to eat a shed shell after molting, but probably doesn't care whose shell they're eating. Right after he molted, note his position, and there is another empty shell on the right side. IMG_0764 by macbrush, on Flickr Now he's eating the shed skin on the right hand side instead of his own.
