Rarer roach species that while easy to keep requires a substrate like coconut fiber to burrow. Thrives in a bioactive setup! Often used as a composting roach. Nymphs start out smaller than dubia but grow quickly and adults get larger than dubia roaches. Unlike dubia, both the male and female adult Ivory Heads have large semi-transulcent wings. Size of nymphs will vary depending on stock on hand but I always try to include various sizes so your colony isn't started from a bunch of inbred siblings ;)
Why Ivory Heads?
- calm and slow moving
- adults get larger than dubia roaches
- shiny nymphs have a striking maroon color with light markings
- great roach species to try for a pet gone off food!!
- virtually no smell
- does well in crowded spaces
- pet quality roach with feeder quality ease of care
Providing a variety of feeders is a great enchrichment technique! Having multiple roach species on hand allows you to do this without compromising nutritional value!
