Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches might be the world's easiest pet! They can eat a wide variety of foods and can be kept very happy on fruit scraps and dog kibble.  They are slow, docile, and easy to handle, which makes them a popular choice for children's programs. These impressive insects are a great choice for a classroom pet or even a feeder colony for insectivores. Our colony of Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches were relinquished from a museum exhibit.
