    Default Feeding hissing cockroaches to White's Tree frog.

    Hey guys,
    So I have a question.

    I've been wanting to keep a couple of hissing cockroaches as pets for a while now. However, the nearest stores that would sell that kind of thing are quite far from me, and I don't have a car. My options are to order online or wait an undetermined amount of time until I'm visiting my parents in my hometown, where there's a LLL reptile close by.

    Because I'm impatient, I've been looking into ordering online. It doesn't look like any of the sites I found allow you to order cockroaches of specific sexes. I had planned to get 2 or 3 females because the extra hissing might annoy my roommates.

    But I did find that LLL reptile ships hissing cockroaches in bulk. The minimum you can get at once is 10. So the plan I came up with is to order those 10 roaches, pick out 2 or 3 females to keep, and feed the rest to my white's tree frog. I don't think I can find it in myself to just kill them haha. But I also don't think I can provide for 10 cockroaches and their potential babies. Has anyone here fed hissing roaches to their frogs, by any chance? Is it safe? I'd be ordering in small of course so they'd be half an inch to an inch long. My WTF is fully grown.

    I don't know the species well but as long as they're pretty much like normal roaches and don't have excess chitin or something they should be okay as feeders when they're little.
