Hi Bryan

Go to this link about roaches and scroll down to the hissing roaches.
Looks quite normal if that is what it looks like.

LOLS at himself

I quote this off the given website by Icarus "Males can be distinguished from females by the hornlike pronotum. Males use these to joust, establishing a breeding hierarchy without harm to the animals. Breeding with the females soon follows. The roaches breed end to end. A few days after this the female can be seen with the ootheca (egg case) protruding almost all the way out of her body, frequently causing panic in novice keepers. This is normal behavior and, as long as the animal has not been unduly stressed, the ootheca will be retracted and held to term, with the female giving birth to about 12 to 36 young nymphs."

LOL ok ok guys so im a novice thnx so much guys!!

I tried to post pics to show u guys but it will only let me post pics under 256bytes thats nearly impossible!!

Keep them at 30 Degrees Celcius and the nymph's will come trust me!

I started breeding with them about 3 or 4 Month's ago, 2 male's to 4 female's , and in the last month 2 gave birth , 1of them produced 47 nymph's and the other 26!

Looks like there's gona be a third lot aswell!

Good luck!
