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. :)

I want some A. tesselata eventually. I notice you are holding them. Are they easy to handle? I read that they were easier to hold than Blaberus species since they are calmer. Can you confirm this?

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!

I think any large roach enjoys poking handlers. Even my G. portentosa can be quite prickly.
