My Polyphaga saussurei


Recommended Posts

I brought over 100 Polyphaga saussurei cockroaches from the Kyzylkum desert. These are adults and nymphs of different ages and sex. Females now systematically produce ootheca, which are incubated separately. I do not plan to sell my cockroaches, but my dream is to create a wonderful, full-fledged culture of this species, where there are both females and males. As far as I know, all existing cultures are parthenogenetic, so I have a unique experiment :)

In the photo there is a male and a female from my collection

Very cool! :D Would love to have a sexually reproducing strain of this species in US culture! If only to see a giant male saussurei in person...
