We’re twins from Madagascar!

The Madagascar hissing cockroach can give birth to as many as 60 baby roaches at a time.

 

We can be outgoing and loud.

Madagascar hissing cockroaches exhale air through breathing holes on it’s body to make a ‘hiss’ sound. Their hiss can be changed to suit four different situations. One is for male combat, two are courting and the last is an alarm hiss to ward off predators.

 

We do our part for the environment.

They eat anything, from decaying plant material to animal carcasses, and then recycle nutrients back into the ecosystem.

 

We can be boisterous!

When defending their territory, these cockroaches will hiss, push, shove, and stand on their “toes” to show who's boss. The male that is larger and hisses more usually wins.
