I have never heard of this roach. I will call AL Game & Fish tomorrow and ask them. I NEVER send roaches to FL anymore.

Discoids are legal in Florida last I heard. I'm not sure if you can have them shipped into the state or not but it shouldn't be too hard finding someone who can at least get you a starter colony. I believe Ben Siegel breeds them, might be worth giving him a call.

Im pretty sure they are not, but I sure wont ship them. I got in trouble in '09 for having a vine snake and water cobra. I've kept venomous specimens all my life and had no idea they changed the law in '02.

You could look into zophobas if you want a feeder that's easy to raise. The only thing that differs them from their smaller cousins is you have to separate adults in order to get them to pupate and they can't handle colder temps.

I know of people that travel and just pick a few up different types of roaches and send them home in the mail or just bring them home when they drive back .
