The zebra roach is a gorgeous species that enjoys heat and humidity. The nymphs change from solid black to orange to zebra striped as they grow. This species is not picky and enjoys a wide variety of foods with adult females gorging themselves on grain-based ones. Adults are very well behaved when handled. This species is a very good climber so a tight lid and effective barrier combo is necessary to keep them contained.
