Anyone know where i can get these types of roaches? I tried looking for caresheets as well but i haven't found any. Thinking about switching from dubia to green banana roaches
IME they eat pretty much anything. Banana are loved by chameleons, however it would be almost impossible to use them as staples. They are too small, so you'd need to feed a lot. Meanwhile the adults do not live that long and they are the ones with the green color. They also can climb and fly fast making it hard to feed more than one at a time. They make great treats though. Their nymphs are also tiny and can't climb, would be good feeders for hatchling/young chameleons.
I wouldn't bother with fruit flies for a juvenile. They grow so fast and can handle larger prey. Doesn't hurt if you want to though!Great info! I am prepping for a juvenile that I don’t have yet. Trying to get ahead of the game on feeders and such. I’ve got flightless fruit fly cultures going. Going to order silkworm eggs around the time I receive him because I don’t want them getting bigger than he can handle before he arrives. But I’m trying to figure out a base to start a colony of that can also grow as he does. Any suggestions?
That'd make sense. The person mine came from traded with Kyle from roach crossing pretty regularly I believe and has been in the hobby for a very long time. Those guys put my bug lord status to shame lol.Hmm i should track the linage. Back then only 2 people had them, roachcrossings, and me.
