    MrHavadollar28 dni temu

    They didn't eat the whole fish because it's not decayed enough or, believe it or not, cooked. It would have gone over better if you'd cooked the fish. People forget that they weirdly have some of the same limitations we do in diet. Also, that is so Trevor. I actually thought that first, but then because it was random, I was thinking it might have been Dayyan. They both like sending brick-a-brack as gifts, like an old grandma. That is an old English phrase for random things of negligible value. When I can send you something, it will be full cans, not empties. Lol.

  • Damien Kinchen

    I'm pretty sure when the headlight roaches eat a certain fungi, they actually glow in the dark. I could be mistaken them for a different species of roach, but I think that's how they got the name. The "headlights" on the head can actually glow. You can also feed them a certain diet to make the headlight a different color. Very interesting species. Most ppl consider roaches pest, but out of the 1000s of species that exist, only around 15 are actually pest. They have so many different cool colored roaches

    I know you don't feed these roaches to your pets but if you did do you think it might cause impaction? They are eating plastic its not harmful to the bug. Mealworms can eat foam to! I wanted to train mealworms to eat my left over foam to help decompose plastics bit then I realized if I did I probably couldn't feed them to my pets. But its interesting to see them thrive off of something with so little nutrition lol
