Common name - Obsidian Cockroach
Scientific name - Pseudoglomeris tarsalis

The listing is for 1x animal, of a rare species of cockroach that is highly sought-after for its metallic, jet-black colouration. This species is a smaller relative of the Emerald Cockroach, and is a much more beginner-friendly alternative.

Females of this species have evolved to be neotenous, meaning that they retain their juvenile appearance into adulthood. Males however gain wings upon reaching adult, and can glide for short distances when spooked.

This species prefers arboreal set-ups, so enclosures that are taller-than-wide should be provided with climbing material such as branches, pieces of rotting wood and cork bark. Good ventilation is a must for this species.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Thailand.

The nymphs and adults feed mainly on fruits. Additional supplements such as bee pollen and fish food should be offered as part of their balanced diet.
