    I've been keeping rhino roaches (m. Rhinoceros) for about 2 years now. Lady night one was shimmying around like it was about to molt, so I misted every now and then but otherwise left it alone. Now it's not moving and I think it's dead. The other two are fine as far as I know. I haven't changed husbandry at all recently. The dead one has always been a bit smaller than the other, is it possible it was just weak?

    For obvious reasons this is pretty devastating. Any ideas on what happened?

    What did you feed your rhinoceros roaches?

    Sorry to hear that, it really sucks to lose a roach like that.

    Oak leaves and occasionally carrots and fish flakes. I know not to feed US eucalyptus because it's toxic.

    Now one of the others is acting weak and won't eat. It's still crawling around though. Should I put it in an icu? Granted i know rhinos don't like heat.

    The second one died after fighting hard for over a day. I've moved the last one to a different enclosure and am praying it stays ok.
