Madagascar Hissing Cockroach, Living, Adult

Item # 143666

Your class might have trouble believing it, but this ferocious-looking creature is actually quite shy. When disturbed, it hisses loudly by forcefully expelling air through its spiracles. 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.
