This plump species contends for the record of bulkiest roach. The nymphs are little tanks, bulldozing through substrate. The adults like good moisture in their diet, and a deep, coarse substrate (three inches or more) is recommend for optimal breeding. One of the most amusing parts of keeping this species is feeding time; anything placed on the surface of the substrate is dragged under by a hoard of hungry nymphs.
