 Our Red Runners are currently 1/4 to 3/4" in length on average

Red Runner Roaches are also known as the Turkestan Roach and are from Central Asia & the Middle East.

Red Runners are very nutritious as they have a high meat to shell ratio containing 37% protein and 6% fat making them very similar to a cricket nutritionally.

They are known to be exceptionally high in vitamin B12

Adult males can 'fly' and so they must be housed in a screen-top container.  They grow quickly if kept between 85 and 90°, but can be kept at current size for quite awhile at 70°. These roaches breed quickly with each female producing 100 babies monthly.

They are easily gut-loaded when fed Repashy Bug Burger with it's high protein and calcium content.
