Colombian Roach.


Recommended Posts


First, let me apologize for the quality of this photo. I was working with a crappy camera, fogged lens due to high humidity, and it was night. This was the only roach species I photographed while on a trip with my tropical ecology class. This was taken on Gorgona Island off the Pacific Coast. I've traveled to Colombia twice and have a ton of photos of other inverts, but unfortunately this is the only roach species. I just wanted to share a memory I have. This specimen was much more interesting in person and a good size. I'll be traveling to Costa Rica in a few weeks where I'll be working on an independent study on the insects found on a property owned by the university I attend. Hopefully I'll be able to share some photographs of roach species, both alive and preserved specimens.
