The rest of the brain could be in the nervous system.

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!

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!

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).

Nice thread, and those are so great looking roaches. I myself am wanting to build up my roach collection this spring and summer once my new bug/hobby room is built.

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!

I guess I would consider hisserdude to be the roach expert if I have a question about roaches. I read one time that you could cut off a roaches head and he/she could live for several days or week without a head. Not sure how true that is.

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.

Them African bullet roaches are now on my favorites list? How did you get your hands on those? I might look into getting some in the future.

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!
