This roach hails from southern Africa. The common name comes from the beautiful appearance of the full grown adult animal. Babies are a mottled black and white animal, looking like stones. Babies cannot climb smooth surfaces, but adults can. The adult animals can also fly, and will choose to if they are upset enough. Adult animals have blue-grey coloration, with red bellies.
