Maxing out at about 1-¼ inch, these big guys are close to the largest Dubias we sell. If your animal needs or wants a big feeder roach, these large Dubia nymphs might be just what you need.
Our standard Dubia feeder description applies to these 1-¼ Inch Dubia nymphs. They’re highly nutritious, large, gutloadable, easy to keep, animals love them, and so on. They weigh about 1.5 grams each and come loaded with all the stored nutrition that gorging on highly nutritious foods for 4 months provides. We feed our Dubia nymphs so well it’s almost disturbing, but our efforts show in the quality of our nymph feeders and adult breeders.
And these roaches can be gutloaded to the extreme. At this size, Dubia can fill their empty stomachs with up to 3 times their body weight of food! Make it nutritious foods with the vitamins and minerals your animal needs, and these roaches turn into nutritional delivery machines! Feed them awesomely nutritious foods, dust them with a little vitamin and/or mineral powder, and you’re off to the races. Your animal will thank you!
The bottom line is that these Dubia make outstanding feeders, as do all of our nymphs. In fact, we think they’re the best on the market. Customers report that their animals love them so much they go crazy when they arrive, and they can’t get enough. Given what we feed them and the effort we put into raising healthy roaches, that sounds about right. If an animal exists that hates Dubia roaches, we haven’t heard about it.
So if these Dubia are the right size, give them a try. See how your animal responds. If they love them so much they can’t get enough, be sure to let us know!
There is a little variation based on hydration and feeding status. We generally sort these roaches by length up to 1-¼ inch. We try to get them as close to that mark as possible. You can often change their size substantially by giving or withholding food and water.
