    Post Helpful Roaches

    I thought the folks here might find this kinda interesting:

    Cool,(kinda)
    Lots pepole who breed large amounts of geckos/other lizards also breed roaches for food. The reason people choose them over crickets is they do not smell supposedly I have never kept roaches (mealies and crickets are fine for me), do not make noise, and they cannot fly. Here are some links:

    That was a cool article. I keep Madagascar hissing cockroaches as pets. They've gotten out of their cages a couple of times.

    Rattler, what was your species again? I know we talked about it long ago, the one that does not climb up glass? I might be interested in keeping them as food in the future... ya know, for reptiles.
    that makes no logic

    Roaches are preaty awesome, they have some called Death Head roaches.
    B. cranifer I think

    Roaches also have a higher meat to shell ratio compared to crickets, and most species aren't cannibalistic.
