Glowspot roaches are beautiful pet roaches (though they can also be used as feeders too). Nymphs (not pictured) are shiny black with orange heads and prefer burrow through the substrate. Adults have yellow, brown, and black markings and tend to stay above ground more often. Only adult males have the characteristic orange glowspots on the pronotum. This species appreciates a variety of fruits and vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, apples, or oranges. These roaches should have a substrate like coco fiber to burrow around in.
Note: Glowspot roaches don’t actually glow! But it’s been speculated that wild glowspot roaches are able to glow (maybe it’s something in their diet?)
