Common Name: Giant Deaths-Head Cockroach
Scientific Name: Blaberus cranifer

Size: Mixed / per tub
Status: Captive Bred

Food : Cockroaches will eat a range of fruit, veg, cereals and kitchen scraps. I feed all my cockroaches on my dried  'cockroach mix' (muesli, cat biscuits, fish pellets and bran - mixed together), plus a little fruit and veg. I generally feed the cockroaches once or twice a week.

Very similar to the common Deaths-Head cockroach but larger, with darker markings. Approximate adult size 6cm.  A useful live food for larger spiders and reptiles but also a pretty and interesting pet cockroach. 

Note : A tub of cockroaches will always contain enough individuals to start a breeding colony, the number in a tub varies depending on size of species and how many I have in stock. (when I am overrun with a certain species a tub will contain as many as I can fit in!)
