Madagascan Hissing Cockroach

Hissing cockroaches live up to their names by hissing to mimic the sound of a snake, which will hopefully scare away any predators.

Hissing cockroaches are one of only 20% of cockroaches that can fly! There are around 400 species of cockroach. Cockroaches are very clean and will wash themselves if they come into contact with humans!
