Another Archimandrita tesselata male hissing


Recommended Posts

Today I managed to capture a video of another of my Archimandrita males hissing when disturbed. 
Anyone else with hissing Archimandrita roaches?

Nice, good footage of this interesting behavior! :) Many people have reported their peppered roaches hissing, I had a female once, she never hissed, but she was rather old and pretty laid back.

What kind of gear did you use to record the audio?

 

 

I used a canon 70D with a 50mm lens. No external microphone.  I wish I had used that to make a better quality recording. 
I had to amplify the sound as these roaches hiss fairly faint.

There are some fairly inexpensive mics out there if you're interested in making better quality "nature" recordings.  You can check here for some really nice "used" audio gear if you're interested.

There is also a wealth of information available on that site for audio and video recording.

I've noticed mine will hiss some but not a lot, rhino roaches and blaberus species are know for hissing as well
