Anyone else seen these? I was cleaning out all six roach tanks today and found a few in with my G. portentosa. They're completely black instead of brown or with brown / black banding.

It's kinda cool. Very Happy If my colony were larger I'd be tempted to try breeding them separately.

Pics up soon, I hope.

There's a few like that in the colony, but most are either all brown with a black margin or banded.

I've seen people selling them but not for a while. Wait until you get one of those twisty molts where their exo has this line through the back. It's pretty common, could be a result of inbreeding.

Andrew, I've had a few of the "twisty" ones show up, but not for a while. Based on TalkenLate04's experience with his B. dubia, it's from nutritional deficiencies.

I saw one in with the BugZoo's on Friday that I called a "tiger" morph -- it was like my black one, but with a narrow orange band on each abdominal segment. Pretty cool, actually. Very Happy
