dubia roaches are like the bastard child of all roaches. unlike their german cousins, they dont fly, they cant climb smooth surfaces, and they cant even flip themselves over if they happen to end up on their backs. the only time i ever see my roaches die is either old age or when they get out of the cage,usually when the cat manages to find a way into it. she likes to play with them....

i usually find them flipped over somwhere in various degrees of dehydration. often the only sign of life will be their antennae waving around, and they still manage to recover when placed back upright with their head in some water.
