Product Description

The Gromphadorhina Portentosa, comon hissier , is the first roach species that I have kept.  These are some of the largest bugs I have ever seen , with the exption of the g oblongata and the giant burrowing roaches of Austraila.  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 sortly 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. They can bu used as feeders for arborial animals , when the roaches are in thier growth stage ,before the shell gets hard as adults. 
This particular roach gets very big,  at least 3" and quite heavy. So if you are in the market for a great class diplay, pet or feeder for arborial animals, buy granphadorhina portentosa, madagascar hissing cockroach! I ship 2 inch + nymphs.
