Strange white hissing cockroach! Pics.

Postby malane3 » Mon Feb 09, 2009 2:46 am

Changed the Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches over to a larger aquarium today and discovered a white one! :shock: I don't remember seeing a white one in the tank before. Does anybody know anything about this? It's really cool! Posted a video of the roach on YouTube also. :)

Glad you are back!
The cockroach looks really nice, I hope you'll get some more white ones..
All your animal photos are great, love your crazy little Italian Greyhound!

Thats neat. Kinda odd that a white just popped up though. Maybe it just shed. My crickets turn white when they have just shed but they are also soft and kinda squishy.

Thanks, BB. :)
Maybe that's it, suki's mom. I really don't know a whole lot about them. We just kinda ended up with them. I did enough research to keep them healthy but still don't know a whole lot. I wonder if they do shed.

Yes they shed I just don't know if they turn white when they do like crickets. The roaches that I used to feed my geckos (I used to breed them) shed but they only got lighter they didn't turn white.

Ha ha ha ha... You are the strangest girls, I've ever meet :lol: Not even I am fond (sp?) of roaches, especially albino ones.

I'm the kind of person that wants to experience everything positive this world has to offer. I am especially fascinated by all living things. I'd always been curious about hisser roaches and always wanted to hold one: A) because they intrigue me & B) regular roaches creep me out and I hoped by holding tame ones I could get over that. When the babies crawl on me it is a little creepy cause they're so similar to the ones here. The adults are really cool though!

Some bugs? I think all bugs are cute. I love everything. I once had a big a** wolf spider living in my bedroom. Her leg span was probably as far around as a softball. I named her Patricia and she lived in my room for at least six months. She would often crawl accross my floor, wall or bed when I turned the lights out (my gecko lights illuminate my room in red). She was really cool. No "creepy crawlies" scare me. I love them all. Oh and I would "accidently" let a cricket out every few days to feed Patricia.

My brother used to have a wolf spider in the old air unit. We used to toss a fly in his little web on the bottom of the door crack, and watch him come out from behind, and swallow the fly up. I have no clue where he is now, I think one of my cats might of killed him (or he moved).

That's awesome. I love spiders. My cats used to try and eat Patricia but I would spray them with the spraybottle (they learned pretty quick to leave her alone). :D
