    Same here! I'd say that, in my opinion, it is the most stunning form that this morph throws out.

    How's it going everyone? 🙂 Long time no post! School has finally swept past me once again for this year and so my focus can now shift back to the roaches (as if it wasn't already somewhat lol). I plan to get the photoshoots going soon so I can get some more pictures slapped up here and build up this thread. However, one development in my collection that there's no need waiting to supply pictures for is that I'm now officially hisserless! 😮 The allergies were just getting too bad for me and I wasn't doing particularly great with the species I had, so I just decided to sell them all off to a trusted breeder. Even though this is technically supposed to be a thread representing my current collection, I say why not share some pictures here of some absolutely gorgeous roaches I may never own again. 🙂 Here it goes: Elliptorhina laevigata Adult male(s) Freshly-molted adult male Adult females Large nymph(s) Gromphadorhina grandidieri Adult male Adult female Small nymphs Individuals attempting to hide Gromphadorhina grandidieri/Elliptorhina laevigata Adult male comparison (G.grandidieri left, E.laevigata right) Adult male comparison (E.laevigata left, G.grandidieri right) Besides these two hisser species, I also had Gromphadorhina oblongonota, but unfortunately didn't manage to get pictures of them before shipping them away. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed what I did have to show and be sure to stay tuned for more pictures from my drastically-enlarged collection!

    Alobates pensylvanica care?

    Mine does fine on my regular darkling diet - dog food, apple, banana, and carrot.

    Haha, well Macropanesthia rhinoceros are hard to find anywhere do to the epicly slow growth/reproduction times (unless they're not protected and people are able to collect them from the wild), but they should surely be more common over there compared to the U.S. Hopefully you're able to find some soon! I already consider them an awesome species to keep and mine aren't even that close to adulthood yet. lol

    Yep, they're pretty slow and laid back at all life-stages. The only bad thing is that it's pretty easy to get stabbed with the leg spikes of larger individuals when initially picking them up, but it also is with things like Blaberus. Besides that, they're great for handling!
