Thread: Discoid roaches

  1. #1

    Default Discoid roaches

    so my mom is letting me try roaches as feeders for my beardie, firebellied toad, and soon a crested gecko.

    are they good at escaping? my mom will freak if she finds a roach in our house. dead or alive.

    i am getting some Discoid roaches. are their anything i need to know about these before i get them?

    will a bearded dragon be able to eat the adults if the babies live to be full grown?

    Discoids are none climbers on smooth surfaces so you can keep them contained easy.Yes a adult beardie will have no problem munching down on adult discoids.I have a good size colony of dubia,hissers and turks all my beardies love them :wink: They can take awhile to get breeding but once they do they take off.

    I haven't been able to spend much time here the last couple of days, every time I get on, I'm needed to run and help somewhere else in the house!

    Talking about roaches, we dont have roaches in the city where I live so I've never seen one face to face, but yesterday I was walking on the street and there was one of about 2 inches! I just couldnt believe it haha! It probably came into a vehicle from another city! I took a few pics of her, here is one:
