@Insect Rod wrote:I agree, a very nice collection. Also took me a while to look at all of them. I have never collected any roaches but the families goes back millions of years, it would be nice to have a fossil  rock cast of one of those. Looks like several would be a good candidate. I have observed a few roach species in ancient fossil amber resin; and they were preserved forever.
Take a look at insect in amber, just google it.

Yup, they are a very old group, which just proves how durable they are. Smile Yeah, they look cool in amber!

@T.C. wrote:I really like that Balta notulata species. How big does that species get?

Yeah, me too! They are actually pretty small, adults are only about 15 mm or so, and the babies are quite tiny!

@Insect Rod wrote:Panchlora is really unique to me, nice photo work you did.

Yeah, it's an amazing genus, and the species vary in color widely! (Most described species are green though).

Thanks! Very Happy Cool, I highly recommend you get into the Blatticulture hobby, you won't regret it! If you ever have any questions regarding husbandry, do let me know!

Aww, thanks, I'd be happy to try and answer any questions you may have. Smile
Yes, cockroaches can survive quite a while without a head, since they essentially have an extra nervous system in their abdomen I believe. Still, they can't live long without a head since they can't eat or drink, so they eventually die of starvation or dehydration.

Yeah, they look really nice! I got a pair from Kyle at Roachcrossing.com, and they have bred very well for me! I do have a bunch available, and my shipping boxes just arrived so I'll be posting an ad here today!

The Gyna caffrorum and lurida, are real awesome looking. I have never seen the Gyna Lurida before aside from a few pictures on the roach forum.
