The domino roach is a classic staple of the roach enthusiast’s collection. Its bold, handsome markings coupled with its hardiness have made it a favorite among newcomers and veterans of the hobby. Like other members of the genus Therea, the nymphs can take two years or more to reach adulthood, but it is certainly worth it to watch an enclosure full of adults bustling around or letting a big adult female crawl on your hand!
