Jumping dubia female

Recommended Posts

I know male dubia will jump off your hand and flutter a few feet, but I have one female dubia who jumps off my hand and lands on the ground. Usually females are somewhat sluggish due to their heavier body frame, but this female is large and more wide than long I guess giving her more stamina? Still, the rest of my females dont do this they cling on to my hand, not jump off. Odd behavior

A lot of my roaches (not just dubias) jump, whether they have wings or not. It just depends on their flight or fight instincts, I guess. I haven't messed with my large dubia colony in a long while, so when I cleaned their enclosure, I decided to handle a few. Some just ran around, and a few jumped.
