These are another great feeder roach I keep. The nymphs are tolerated by even my smallest species of gecko (Strophurus spp.) Again, roaches are 1,000 times a better feeder than any cricket or worm you can think of. This is a non-climbing/non-flying species. They produce pretty rapidly as long as you keep them properly. I am currently upsizing the colony as well as my other species.

Here are a few pics of them

here is a pic of a comparison between two species I keep...(E. Distanti on the left & B. Boliviensis Hybrid on the right)

no they don't get much bigger than 1.5-2" the true Discoid definitely gets around 2" but since these are a hybrid they stay a little smaller and are more prolific than the discoid
