Giant Burrowing Cockroaches are native to Australia and are found mostly in tropical Queensland.
Macropanesthia Rhinocerus are the largest cockroach in the world. They grow up to 80 millimetres and can weigh as much as 35 grams.
They can live up to 10 years. The male has a pronounced scoop at the front of his head and the females are more rounded. The female has live babies, not eggs and can have up to 30 at a time.
They are best kept in a medium sized tank with a few inches of sandy soil, peat moss and/or soil. Feed them on eucalyptus leaves, apple and carrot.
Burrowing cockroaches should be misted with water a couple of times a week, but not kept on wet substrate.
They make great pets as they don't fly, bite or sting.
