Nauphoeta cinerea
Originally uploaded by edwbaker
Commonly known as the "Lobster Roach" Nauphoeta cinerea is a mid-sized Blaberid widely used as food for those interested in keeping predatory insects, reptiles, etc.

This species is fast breeding, and colonies can increase in population very rapidly.

More cockroach posts coming up!

As usual click on the photo to see more of my photographs of this species on Flickr.
