One of them molted this morning around 8 AM. I got to see how the wings unfurl. This time, the roach did "hang itself" so to speak on one of the pieces of wood that I stood up in the cage so that it's wings unfurled normally
The adult is long and sleek looking. Could this be Parcoblatta virginica I wonder?
