Hissing cockroaches are much more lovable than the usual pest cockroach and are a favourite at parties and presentations. In Madagascar, their native home, they are the composters as they eat all the fallen leaves and debris on the forest floor. Hissing is their way to huff and puff to scare off predators or to intimidate a rival cockroach for the attention of the females. Really, they are pushing air through small holes on their backs. Have you ever huffed out air in fear or frustration? Truth is, hissing cockroaches are all hiss and no bite. Most amazing of all, they can also survive almost anything, including losing their heads.
