    This photo thread is admittedly going to be way huger than the beetle one since they make up only 13% or so of what I keep right now, but hopefully you all with find some of the lil guys shared here intriguing as well. 😛 I'll go ahead and get things rolling with the current crowning jewel of my collection, my smallish nymph pair of Rhinoceros Roaches, Macropanesthia rhinoceros.

    Good evening. 😛 I've decided to start up a photo thread on my pretty small, but growing beetle collection after finally learning how to share pictures easily here thanks to the one and only, @Hisserdude. Let's begin things with my most miniscule and possibly most otherworldly species, your favorite pest, Mezium affine. Mezium affine Adults

    The egg crate in the Armadillidium vulgare "Orange Vigor" enclosure was actually used in their previous enclosure for months where things were more ventilated and the substrate got a tad drier. When I moved it to the new enclosure, It seems like it somehow microbialy was already used to the conditions in isopod enclosures and somehow resists it now? The other egg crates I have in enclosures which are basically identical or even drier than the aforementioned enclosure are somehow molding, so this supports my theory a bit.

    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
