Wolfie Posted October 11, 2012 Share Posted October 11, 2012 Hello! My name is Wolfie. I'm 19, female and studying Animal Management at university. I'm originally from Winchester, England, and I have just recieved my very first cockroach. I tested my sexing ability and I believe she's a female. I should have recieved a pair, but one did not arrive unfortunately, I'm following it up, but for now, 'Matilda' as she has been named, is living alone. I must say, I've been looking through all the posts about hissing cockroaches and they seem to be far more complicated than I first thought, I didn't know about all the different subspecies or anything. My boyfriend is the hard-core invertebrate scientist out of us two, and he's not too hot on roaches, but I'm looking forward to learning. Here she is, can't wait to learn more about her, my main question is: I was absolutely shocked when I first saw her at how big she seemed, does that mean she's mature? She's a pretty grumpy girl right now, though she's happy to be handled by me she hisses at my boyfriend, so far she seems to enjoy tangerine segments, carrot, dog food, leftover pasta and Terry's chocolate oranges! As well as Matilda, I have a dog, a Great Dane/Boxer cross named Jade, a very angry grey cat with no tail called Bunty, twelve ferrets called Bannock, Futret, Hoodie, A.S.B.O., Flea, The Stig, Yo Ho, Ahoy, Lily Savage, Peggy, Sunny Jim and Captain Slow, although technically, Captain Slow is a hybrid, he is 25% ferret and 75% European Polecat, and a very beautiful boy too. All my ferrets were rescued from bad homes or found wandering the streets or were otherwise unwanted, now they are ambassadors, we work with the public in country fairs, agricultural shows and fun-days, showing them what great pets they are, and doing some fun racing too, so if you ever need ferrety help, I'm certainly a good person to come to! Anyway... that's pretty much me... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
