I have, at first it was kind of like oh, okay. Wasn't much shocked, I've seen way worse (outside of fishkeeping) but it is certainly an interesting fact of nature. Clean up crew gone rogue, huh? Or extreme? LOL
It does! @manyfacez
I do! Two female, both easily five inches long, Madagascar hissing cockroaches.
Hey, no offence here, not an easy person to offend! And literally pretty much everyone has said the same thing. Lol
For your questions. So, the kiddos of this species I have do not like people. I got them from someone who was giving them away and let's just say they were severely neglected and literally left in a dark corner for an entire year. Pretty much no human contact so they're afraid of humans.
I've had them about a year? The one will let me touch and pet her (took a while), the other one still runs away hissing when I come close. Which is better than when I first got them. So, progress!
Others of their kind that I have met are very sweet. Pick them up and they'll just sit on you. Madagascar hissers aren't the fastest, and they're pretty chill kids. They don't at all bite, or attack. Their defense is the hissing nosie which they make by blowing air out of certain tubes on their body. You can tell when they're going to do it because they inflate their bodies before hand, think a balloon before you let it lose. Then they run away or just cower there. The noise sounds like a poorly imitated cat hiss. It's amusing LOL
With these girls, I do not. Because I respect their dislike of me. But others of their kind? Oh totally will. Get me to someone doing a roach showing and I will be first in line to hold them!
But anyways. There's a long post on some stuff you probably didn't want to know LOL
