10 cm/4 in Cockroaches found...

A 'monster' cockroach and other new insects have been discovered in the jungles of Borneo, scientists say.

An expedition of caves and cliffs, led by the Nature Conservancy, also said it saw previously unknown fish and plants.

Cockroaches are one species I cannot stand. Especially when they are horny, and start to fly all over the place.

I see them, I kill 'em. HA HA..!!

More here...

Here are some more I needed to know:

They prefer darkness, but are not afraid of light. They do run when you wake up and turn on a light, but not because of the light.

The sucker can live without its head for an entire week.

That's nothing as I've also heard that they can survive a nuclear holocaust.

How about we send some of them to moon and mars next time any craft goes there?

They will eat almost anything: left-over human food, paper, wood, leather, cigarette butts, tooth paste, coffee grinds, glue, soap, feces, fabric, shoes, paint, the glue on the back of wallpaper, human hair, fingernails, etc.

Cockroaches have been shown experimentally to transport a number of pathogenic bacteria and viruses on their legs and bodies. They have been found to carry the pathogens that cause tuberculosis, cholera, leprosy, dysentery, and typhoid, as well as over 40 other bacteria (like salmonella) or viruses that can cause disease.

Did I say that hens love to eat them?
