Cockroach on a blue object with a grainy texture, possibly food or substrate.

As part of an ongoing partnership with the Science Department at Fort Lewis College we received a donation of Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches to enhance the diversity of our Science Corner. These are truly marvelous creatures. They shed their outer “exuviae” when they need some growing space. The cockroaches emerge white and then darken as their exuviae hardens in order to become a protective layer.
