Good day,this is my first post here,just want to know if someone can help me with madagascar hissing roaches,I want to breed them to feed to my veiled and beardie,how long do they take to mature?thanks
I don't totally agree. Yes Dubia area great, but nothing wrong with hissers. I'd suggest having both, if you can.
Adults can be fed off, if freshly moulted and you are feeding a large chameleon (an adult male veiled). But even if you couldn't feed off adults its no big deal, since you'll use the sub-adults.
They can easily live 5 years, breeding for several of those.
They are much easier to gutload than every other roach I've got - they will eat readily and heartily of a wider range of foods
they breed just fine. Not as prolific as Dubia, or Turks, true. But that's no problem is it? just have a few more adult breeding females than you would with dubia.
