Mama Madagascar Hissing Cockroach

Mama Madagascar Hissing Cockroach (Elliptorhina javanica)

Happy Healthy Mama from my Colony.
Scientific name
Elliptorhina javanica
Sorry I just read no captives!! It was just such a neat shot to catch. Ill delete it if its breaking the rules though. Unlike other roaches these cuties hold their eggs internally so it looks like theyre giving live birth. Theyre Prolific.

Hi Lagopuss... yes, you are right.

It is an interesting picture but we do try to keep Birdforum for wild creatures. If you could replace this image that would be fine. Just use the edit option on this image to Browse/Upload then change all the details, that should work.

We do have a sister site at [COLOR="Blue"]World Photography Forum[/COLOR], where images such as this would be very welcome.
