Madagascar hissing roaches make great feeder insects for larger reptiles and amphibians. These tasty treats pack a huge protein and calcium punch and are very simple to maintain. They also make great classroom pets for science based lesson plans to show the different stages of molting. (No you do not have an albino roach, you've got one who has just molted and is showing how soft and venerable they are right after molting and before they harden.) The friendly creatures will readily walk on hands and make interesting household pets as well.

Madagascar Hissing Cockroach

Difficulty: Beginner

Housing: Cricket keepers and 10 gallon aquariums work great for these guys. Note: they can climb nearly everything so a fine mesh screen in addition to a standard lid is ideal to keep babies from escaping.

Food Preferences: Fruit and veggie scraps (bell peppers are a big favorite), carrots, Reptanicals' Cricket Feast, Reptanicals' Roach Feast, carrots, Reptanicals' River Shrimptortoise pellets and dry vegetable based pastas are also happily accepted

Temp Requirements: approx. 65 Degrees to 85 Degrees. Extreme cold and heat can be lethal

Breeding: Easy 

Substrate: Coconut coir, peat moss, or Reptanicals' Bug Bedding, slightly moist on one side

Humidity: mostly dry, slightly damp substrate on one side will provide enough humidity for egg health and proper molting.

Enrichment: Provide cork bark or other tube style places for your roaches to hide. They prefer tight spaces just large enough for them to fit, but not much bigger.

NOTE: We suggest a bio-active set up with both springtails and isopods to keep your roach enclosure clean. They are nature's janitorial crew and to eat any leftover or hidden food that may mold. (Roaches like to pull their food into their hides if they can, so sometimes mold may be out of sight.)
