Green Banana Roach


The GBR is my favorite all-around feeder. With the BRIGHT GREEN color, and the quick movement to catch the chameleons’ attention, this is a hunger strike breaker! Smaller chameleons can still take the adults, and if they escape, they die quickly at room temperature, much faster than Dubia roaches.

The GIANT Green Banana Roach


In the above picture, you see a GIANT adult female next to the smaller regular GBR.

The GIANT Green Banana Roach is 3 times bigger than the regular GBR. The GIANT GBR is a lighter green than the regular GBR, but if you have Jackson chameleon or bigger, the GIANT is for you! The GIANT GBR take 5 minutes of care, once a week. They die quickly at room temperature, much faster than Dubia roaches.

Dubia Roaches


The Dubia roach (Blaptica dubia) is the most common roach feeder for reptiles. From birth to adult, they cannot climb smooth surfaces, and will eat a variety of grains, vegetables and fruits. The females give live birth to approximately 30 young a month, and adults live about 18 months. Originating in Central and South America, the Dubia will not breed below 68 degrees. Dubia are not legal to ship into Florida, but Discoid Roaches are, advertised below this ad.

Discoid Roaches


Discoid Roaches (Blaberus discoidales) are identical in care as the Dubia Roach The only difference is the reproduction rate is a bit slower. Non-climbing, non-flying, a great feeder that is legal n Florida.

Kenyan Roaches


Kenyan Roaches (Blaberidae sp. “Kenya”) is one of the smallest adult feeder roaches available. If you are tired of keeping a large roach colony and picking out babies, the Kenyan Roach is for you. The adults reach about 1/4”.

Buffalo Beetle Cultures


The Buffalo Beetle (Alphitobius diapherinus) is one of the easiest small feeders to raise. Adult beetles grow to a length of about 3/16 inch. Beetles and larvae do not climb smooth surfaces, and eat wheat bran. Great for using as a cleaning crew for your roach bin, they eat the leftovers!

1-3 Cups for $10 each
4 Cups for $35

Bean Beetle Cultures


I culture Callosobruchus maculatus, a tropical, prolific species. The larvae eat black-eyed peas; the adults do not eat. The culture needs no water, the adults need no food; this is a no-care feeder!

If you have baby chameleons, Carpets, or Pygmies, Bean Beetles are a great feeder; they climb screen, plastic, branches and glass, getting within range of your timid eaters, and are the size of Hydei fruit flies.

What are the best things about this feeder? The Bean Beetle is 30% higher in protein than crickets, ounce for ounce! The second amazing fact is the adults do not fly (glide a few inches really) unless the culture is crowded. If the culture is crowded, you get fliers! So you can control your feeder to become a flier! How cool is that??

1-3 Cups for $10 each
4 Cups for $35

Rice Flour Beetles


The rice flour beetle is slightly smaller than a bean beetle. We have found the best mixture for a food source to be white and brown flour mixed with brewers yeast. With this mixture we have found higher production than any other food source. This is a no-care feeder with no water requirement. To harvest the beetles use a toilet paper roll or sift the beetles with a fine mesh kitchen strainer.

1-3 Cups for $10 each
4 Cups for $35

Dark Mealworm Cultures


Dark Mealworms (Tenebrious obscures) reach an adult length of 1/2" before turning into a very small 1/8" beetle. The larvae will only pupate when separated from each other. This can be accomplished by using cardboard for them to pupate into. These larvae move much faster than typical mealworms, which will generate more strikes.

1-3 Cups for $10 each
4 Cups for $35

Phyllium philippinicum Leaf Insect


The philippinicum leaf insect is one of the easiest of the leaf insects to raise. Similar to the Australian ET stick insect, it is slow moving, and easy to handle. The females grow to about 4-inches long, and are quite bulky. I feed them mostly on wild blackberry leaves.

1 NYMPH for $10.00
5 NYMPHS for $40.00
Sexed NYMPH for $15

Extatosoma tiaratum (ET), Australian Stick Insect


ET is one of the best stick insects for children to handle because it is a slow mover. Easy to feed, blackberry and oak leaves are the best choice. The ET is one of the bulkiest stick insects around.


1 NYMPH for $10.00
5 NYMPHS for $40.00
Sexed NYMPH for $15

Vietnamese Stick Insect (ramulus artemis)


The Vietnamese Stick Insect has a 6” body length and up to 8” in the resting position with front legs extended. All the sticks in the USA are female and parthenogenic. They have a very high reproduction and hatch rate. They can be fed blackberry, oak, rose, raspberry, hazel, and ivy leaves.

SPECIAL!! 100 NYMPHS for $25

Sipyloidea sipylus, Madagascan Pink Wing Stick Insect


The Pink Wing stick insect is similar to the Indian stick insect in size and color. The differences are that the Pink Wing can fly as an adult, the nymphs are bright green, and are quicker moving. They feed on blackberry leaves and can be housed with Indian stick insects.

SPECIAL!! 100 NYMPHS for $25.00

Indian Stick Insects


The Indian Stick Insect is the most common stick insect raised for study in universities, classrooms, and as a feeder. Adults reach 5 inches, and the Indian is very soft, so chameleon’s can take a bigger Indian Stick easily. Nymphs and adults can be housed together; they eat Ivy, blackberry, and romaine.
