10 – Blaberus Giganteus – The Central American Giant Cockroach
Found most often in central America and northern South America, the Central American cockroach prefers areas of high moisture and little light – think caves, tree hollows, and cracks in rocks. It feasts primarily on decaying plant material, bat guano, fruit, seeds, dead insects and animals also make up part of this cockroach’s diet. Females grow to be around 10 cm long, while their smaller male counterparts reach up to 7.5 cm. As with most insects and arachnids, the females dominate the size charts.
