    I know you started this thread a while ago but it deserves a bump! great information, I have False death heads readily available in a local Exotic Pet store and might start a small colony for all of my Rhacs.....maybe throw in a few to the strophurus if they are small enough. Thanks again!!

    To add to that.....your roaches are what you feed them!! If you feed them dog food you feed your reptiles dog food!

    Also, I got a small colony of False Death Heads. The females do not fly, they don't have wings either or at least the ones that I have don't. The nymphs can fly though but not well at all. They don't stink and cannot climb glass or vertical objects as long as they are slick surfaces. Really good feeders and easy to keep.

    you probably have some thing other than "False Death Heads" that name is usually connected to Blaberus discoidalis i know for a fact that thay cant fly or climb, both male and females have wings and nymphs don't have wings and cant climb. if you post pics i could probably figure out what you have.

    well those do look like Blaberus discoidalis but they could be another Blaberus species or a hybrid species. also how could the nymphs fly when they don't have wings? and what i think you are mistaking for females are nymphs right before they molt to adults.

    edit: just saw your other post you probably have another species in there it sounds like if you can get some picture of them that would help.
