Drooling All Around


Recommended Posts

So, I was perusing the web for cockroach pics, and I found this guy's photo album, and, all I can say is "WOW!"

Kudos to this "artour_a" for taking these amazing pictures.

Now we just need to get these into the hobby, especially that second "orange desert roach" (too bad it's Australian, we'll never get it).

hell i would settle for more of the roach from central and south America and i imagine they must be easier to import than from Australia

Well, of course I would be happy to see any new roaches enter the hobby; it's just that the orange one is absolutely stunning, as well as many other Australian species ( Polyzosteria mitchelli, for example). It would be great to get some more in from down south, though. We just gotta find the right people with the right connections, that's all ;) .

Now THAT would be one heck of a trip!

On a related note, I found some other amazing looking species, that we need to add to the "to import" list (I tried to restrict it to ones with reliable ID's):

If anyone else knows of any other awesome species that need to be in culture, feel free to post them.

Ellipsidion humerale & Methana marginalis are absolutely stunning. The name Methana scares me though...exactly why was that name given? Conjures up visions of a truly horrible defensive smell.. :blink:

You're right the orange one IS beautiful. So are the three green ones, the two dark red.....
