How creepy!
We raise these guys as feeders, but more than anything, they have been interesting cleaner uppers for our tortoises in their enclosures. Once in awhile, we find some ones that have passed away and here they are.

You will receive THREE (3) roaches :) The photos are an example of lovely critters who have already found homes!

I assume the pesticides on the food weren't washed off their foods very well and they passed away. You can tell the males from females by the nubs on females and full fledged wings on males when they are mature.

Very cool!
They are preserved in alcohol in a 2 3/4" Vintage Wheaton Scintillation vial made of plastic with a seal tight cap. Very neat. You won't be getting these suckers anywhere else as cool as these :)

Discoloration may occur of solution as they are freshly prepared, but they are kept in Ethanol alcohol (70%) which can be easily obtained -- or you can use Isopropyl if need be! :) The shipping may jumble them into discoloring solution as well, which is normal as they are fresh!
