Today I got a package that was supposed to have 100 lateralis roaches and an aphonopelma flagstaff orange. No cockroaches at all. He didn't even ship them. Also my aphonopelma flagstaff orange arrived dead. All I got alive was a stowaway cockroach from his collection. My parents are making me feed it because it can climb glass and might be pregnant. It has a very light and almost unnoticable red starburst pattern on it's back and two white dots on its sides on each side. My question is are there any roaches that are dangerous to feed to tarantulas. If so would this be one of the.

Lats, dubia, and lobsters are safe for tarantulas. I think hissers are too, as for other species I don't have the experience so I wouldn't be able to tell you.

sounds like it could be a stowaway... if you're in doubt kill it and get rid of it. If it's German roach it can infest quite quickly.
