satchellwk Posted April 6, 2012 Share Posted April 6, 2012 Hello, my name is Satchell, and I am new to this forum, but I have been active on other invert forums for a few months now. I decided to share some of my roach photos on here, I hope you enjoy! I got my first roaches, 7 Blaberus giganteus, last September, courtesy of Bugs in Cyberspace. All but one have now molted into adulthood. Here they are right before final molting: and here's a recent pic of a few of them: and a pic of one of them in the process of molting: Finally, here's the terrarium that I keep them in, which they now also share with 2 other species (I'll get to that later): Last November, I picked up species number 2 at a reptile show: a starter colony of B. dubia: I also keep a terrarium with some assorted native species of all kinds of arthropods, which includes some random roach nymphs that I happen upon from time to time. However, one in particular gave me a pleasant surprise when it molted into adulthood, and now has the privilege of a container to its own: In addition to the Pseudomops septentrionalis, I also have another small cup which houses my 3 Ischnoptera deropeltiformis, or, as I prefer to call them, my "sexy leg" roaches. Just look at how sexy those legs are. (they are collected from the wild as well.) : Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
