His dad was bigger :shock:
He only gets 4 adult roaches a week and a few morios once a week when we have them in (and we remember about them :oops: ). He picks at his greens and has a few pieces of squash now and again and this has been his main diet for about 18months. He was a big lad when we got him, at 13 weeks old he was 186g and 15in :shock:

It's strange isnt it, they can have such picky appetites and yet stay so big, i think its because they get lazy as they get older :)

I gave some giant hissing roaches away the other day and the guy felt bad so brought me a trade of Morio beatles as he knew i bred mealworms. OMG they are massive :shock: I'm a litle scared of them but will have a go at breeding them :lol:

Wow look at the size of him, i wonder does he have german giant genes somewhere in his back ground!

When my wee girl seven sees the white canvas type bag the bugs come in the post it shes goes mental glass dancing! She would eat 50 locusts or more a week if i let her. But because of her size i always have to be careful and not risk weight gain!

Hi Catmishka33, no I don't mind :mrgreen
He still only gets livefood once a week (4/5 adult roaches) and has done for nearly 3 years now. This seems to work for him and keeps his weight steady at about 720g. :wink
