These species mature at over approximately two inches. They are the perfect feeder for monitors, large skinks, box turtles, large amphibians (like pacman frogs), and mammals.
This is an excellent feeder species. The adult females hit a little over 2 inches, while the males hit about 1.5 inches. The females can give birth to 25-45 babies, and can do so every two months. In my experience, these are more prolific than Blaptica dubia! The nymphs are very stocky and meaty. All you need to get these guys breeding is an enclosure, egg crates, heat, food, and plenty of moisture; They will gnaw on each other's wings (and each other!) if they do not have enough moisture. Although both sexes are winged, they cannot fly, and neither nymphs nor adults can climb.

This is a very rare species that has only recently begun to surface in the standard hobby. Very similar to Eublaberus distanti, this species's care is the same; a good two inches of chunky substrate and plenty of fruits and veggies. The adults and nymphs cannot fly or climb, and the females give live birth. The nymphs are engineered marvels of nature; their forelimbs are specially modified for digging and have only a tiny "foot;" the rest is a spiky spade.
This plump species contends for the record of bulkiest roach. The nymphs are little tanks, bulldozing through substrate. The adults like a lot of 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. Adults and nymphs cannot climb or fly.
