Madagascar Hissing Cockroach, Living, Adult

(in stock)


Your class might have trouble believing it, but this ferocious-looking creature is actually quite shy—they can even be handled. This insect is originally from the island of Madagascar. When disturbed, it hisses loudly by forcefully expelling air through its spiracles. Its large carapace has false eyespot protrusions that give the roach its fierce appearance. Once it becomes accustomed to being handled, it no longer hisses. However, if you leave it alone for a few weeks, it begins to hiss again. Adult.
