Hello,

Here are some pictures of what I believe to be Blaberus giganteus. I know that there are some crosses out there but these should be the real deal. Or at least I'm hoping. I think they came from stock out of a university. That's about all I know about them.







Thanks,
-Andy

Thanks for the replies everybody. It's comforting to know that they appear to be the real thing.

These are great roaches to keep as pets. They're pretty neat really. I think the only two adults I have now are males but one day the others will molt and I'll get some offspring. They do live fairly long for roaches if I remember correctly.

They produce a little bit of scent but it doesn't bother me at all.

Thanks,
-Andy

Mine make a "gassy" noise before they release a rotten egg smell, it's quite the experience if their close to your face.

What could you use these giants to feed?

(I apologise for using the thread)
