Archimandrita tesselata / Giant Peppered Roach
A.tesselata is one of the massive roaches with males reaching over 3 inches and females being much bulkier but bit shorter due to their more rounded shape.
Adults live a long time and do not put out defensive smells like many roaches. A.tesselata is becoming a more commonly kept species. Super calm and easy to handle. Females have 20-30 babies at a time and keep their eggcases inside their bodies until hatching. Nymphs are slow growing and can take nine months or more to become adults. Adults do not fly well and neither adults nor nymphs are capable of climbing up glass which makes them easy to keep inside their home.
