Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The giant burrowing cockroach is also known as the rhinoceros cockroach and litter bug (the latter name may be misleading, as cockroaches are not true bugs). They are native to Australia and mostly found in tropical parts of Queensland. They are the world's heaviest species of cockroach (although Blaberus giganteus is the longest) and can weigh up to 35 g (1.2 oz)and measure up to 80 mm (3.1 in) in length. They can live for up to 10 years.Unlike some other cockroaches, they do not have wings and are not considered pests. The cockroach plays a vital part in the ecosystem by consuming dead leaves, eucalyptus in particular, and recycling other matter.show more
