Gsc Posted August 9, 2007 Share Posted August 9, 2007 I recently recieved an email from a friend and we began discussing Megaloblatta. SUPER rarely offered roaches that are reportedly very hard to keep alive. You read horror stories of people purchasing these only to have them die. I hear they come from high up in the rainforest canopy... SOMETHING had to be missing in their captive husbantry requirements. The gentleman brought up some new ideas for me to kick around... this was part of his email (I hope he doesn't mind- I appreciate the info/ideas)...It's resparked my interest in the species "Megaloblatta are reported to die easily because they are not fed the correct foods. They require boiled decaying wood laced with a very tiny amount of honey. A little exotic but apparantly it works. The nymphs in particular are nectar feeders and most keepers seem to use animal foods and veggies. Its like feeding dogfood to butterflies. That and they live in moist areas during the day and forage at night, so humidity needs to be high." does anyone have any other ideas about the species... I thought that spome of the Eyelash Gecko/ Day Gecko diets might work to help supplement a varied diet... Graham Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
