Advertisement The Cheddar Cheese Balls. My new, and possibly temporary Pycnoscelus surinamensis colony. For the substrate I used the soil where I found most of them and mixed it with leaves, similar to the place where I caught them. It's namely sandy soil mixed with dead leaves. As fate would have it, despite the fact the adults could easily climb glass, they cannot for some reason climb this type of plastic. It was not long before I added our first um guest, an adult female. After gathering some rotting wood and a few sturdy leaves here is the end result. Food is a chunk of banana and two pieces of dog food. As you can see I've also caught a few isopods as a clean up crew, I will need to add more than the four currently in there, I have two separate species. After a watering mishap I had to rearrange some things and replace the dog food that got splashed. As you can see, the isopods seem to like the new enclosure, the roaches are currently underground. And here is the final roach added for now. I'm probably going to catch a few more, congrats and well done to @Hisserdude for the positive ID based off a tiny nymph. I'm anxious to see how prolific they are since this is a parthenogenetic species. As of now the total is two adults and one nymph.
