Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches are one of the largest cockroaches, adults can reach 2 to 3 inches in size. Originally from the island of Madagascar, they make their home in rotting logs and wood. Hissing cockroaches are often kept as pets or offered as feeder insects. Unlike most cockroaches, hissing cockroaches don’t have wings. Hissers have a relatively long life span and under optimal conditions they can live up to 5 years. They are excellent climbers and including on smooth glass and should be kept in an enclosure with a lid to ensure they do not escape.

2nd time I've ordered them from Flukers. 1st time I purchased 25 small/med. Sized hissers, all were alive and well but more on the small side.The second time I purchased 25 large and wow! They are full sized adults, plus package came with several extra's! I had a hard time feeding them to my reptiles because they're so unique and cool, so now I have 60+ madagascar hissers in their own 20 gallon setup. I'll be adding to the colony very soon. Like potato chips, you can't have just 1!!! Thanks Flukers
Very happy with my order

I have ordered Madagascar hissing cockroaches from Fluker's many times before and have recently become a member. My most recent order of 8 juvenile hissers has been great so far. I would like to grow them out this time for a science project for my nephew. The roaches arrived on time and were all alive as usual. The packaging was also excellent, even for the cold weather here in Iowa this time of year. I have had them for about 10 days now and they look good. I will keep you all updated on the progress of the roaches.
Amazing little creatures

Ordered them last week, they shipped Monday and arrived in the mail alive and well.
They ship in a little box that fits pretty will in a mailbox with two screens in the side for air. None of them seem to have any outstanding issues.
There also seems to be a good mix of males and females if you're looking to start your own colony as I am, would definitely recommend!

Hadn't ordered these before because I was unsure of them. I ordered 5 for my Beardie, I ordered the Med/Sm size, again because I was unsure. He loved it, although they were a little on the small side, so the next time I am ordering Large. All arrived alive, cold but alive, and there was even an extra in the package (I am sure this was in case one perished). Definitely ordering again, these things are kind of cute.
