Before they disappeared in nature, the extinct in the wild roach Simandoa conserfariam were collected in a cave system in Africa before it was mined for bauxite. It was the only known population of this species, and so they are now believed to be extinct in the wild. The existence of this species literally depends on hobbyists keeping them alive in captivity. The Simandoa Cave Roach is not likely to be lost to culture as it exhibits several remarkable characteristics that roach hobbyists will love. It has a glossy black abdomen with bumblebee yellow stripes. The wings are a metallic bronzy-olive color with small flecks of metallic gold. The black pronotum (shield area) behind the head is glossy black with a perimeter of yellow. The legs are very spiky and best of all, these roaches emit little squeaks like mice when they are disturbed.

$8 per small nymph.

Roaches love jelly products which are healthy, clean, don’t spoil and don’t attract pests or mold like rotting fruit sometimes does, particularly during warmer months of the year. I also offer mine fish food pellets in small amounts for protein and other nutrients. These small pellets disappear quickly and prevent attraction of mites, etc. Substrate in your roach tank provides both nutrition and humidity for your pets. My roach care sheet is located here.

Sorry, no shipping to Florida.

    Such wonderful little creatures! I’m really happy to finally be able to get my hands on some of these guys. They came packaged very securely and all arrived happy and healthy.

    They like hiding in their substrate so I don’t get to see them that often, but I find them quite cute. I can’t wait till they get old enough to squeak!

    Warning, these nymphs can run SUPER fast! Make sure you have them in a secure container!
