No... please lord no.. NO!!!


anyway, cockroaches sure do crap a lot lol. the pair are pretty active, climbing around the lid as we type... Rolling Eyes they make as much racket as my Emps used to when they were in a KK.

Should probably think about adding some vaseline around the top inch of the tank, or some fine mesh screening under the lid. Babies have NO challenge going through a KK lid.

THE MIRACLE OF BIRTH HAS TAKEN PLACEAH! cheers


went up to feed them, lifted up the rock hide to check on them, the mother and surrounding area was matted with little roaches... I thought they were woodlice at first and I was like "wtf? scratch... they look very similar. anyway I've got them all seperated into another container... some are still very soft. I'll offer them some food in a few days time.

I do think a few have escaped... no more than 5 I think...

scorpions seem to enjoy lovely, soft, recently birthed highly-nutritious cockroach.

Have you added the vaseline yet? 'Cause the rest WILL escape if you don't. Razz

yep, there's a nice layer of vasaline around the lid bit.

It's a KK btw.

I'm still unsure what Gromphadorina species this is... I don't know if it's just a portentosa morph or what.

Either he's massive, or your hands are tiny.

Go look up a key somewhere if you want to confirm an ID.
