  • The world’s largest roach (which lives in South America) is six inches long with a one foot wingspan
  • Some female cockroaches mate once and are pregnant for the rest of their lives (bummer)
  • A cockroach can live a week without its head. The roach only dies because without a mouth, it can not drink water and dies of thirst.
  • Cockroaches can run up to three miles in an hour. (Hey, it is no marathon, but it is not bad.)
  • Cockroaches can live without food for a month, but will only survive a week without water
  • Cockroaches can climb walls because they are equipped with a set of little claws on their feet designed for that very purpose
