Little Kenyan roaches are great feeders for chameleons, mantises, dart frogs, and other animals that eat small sized roaches. This is one of the smallest species of roaches kept in captivity! Nymphs are about the size of melanogaster fruit flies. 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 hide under.
