Product Description

  These are some of the largest bugs I have ever seen , with the expetion of  the giant burrowing roaches of Austrailia.  They can be quite comical when the males joust with the big spikes on the thorax. I watched a young male practice on a light bulb and that was good entertainment.  They can be held and at first seem to want to get away, but calm down shortly and then remain calm and very handleable. 
The Hissing cockroach does climb smooth surfaces and a thin coat of petrolium jelly around the top, about 2 inch strip will do the trick. You can also keep them in with a screaned lid.
The hissers are live bearers and reproduce fairly slowly , until you get a big colony , then you will see some good production.  
This particular roach gets very big,  up to 4" and quite heavy. So if you are in the market for a great pet bug or display animal,Aeluropoda Insignis , madagascar hissing cockroach is a great choice!

These are still quite rare and expensive but they are worth it as you can see by the photo's.
They do grow rather quickly so it won't be long before they are adults.
