Species questions: Pycnoscelus, O. duesta, P. nivea


Recommended Posts

I'm zeroing in on these! Love their looks and colors. (Can't find my dang roach book - where some of the answers lie!)

My questions are the same for each species - and if you own these do you have a favorite and why?

Pycnoscelus indicus (Indian Roach)

Climbers - Burrow - Lifespan - Egg laying/live birth ?

Pycnoscelus surinamensis (Surinam Roach)

Climbers - Burrow - Lifespan - Egg laying/live birth ?

Oxyhalowa duesta (Red Head Roach)

Climbers - Burrow - Lifespan - Egg laying/live birth ?

Panchlora nivea (Green Banana Roach)

Climbers - Burrow - Lifespan - Egg laying/live birth ?
