The high-pitched noise made by male Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches means one of two things: They're ready for a fight, or they're horny. At today's event, a Lake Erie Nature & Science Center naturalist will explain how to tell the difference. Two dozen roaches will be on display, and visitors can stroke their wingless bodies while learning all about the roach's unnerving lifestyle. For example, a female roach can pop out as many as 750 offspring in two years, and the roaches' daily diet includes rotten fruit and veggies. Plus, they can live up to a week after a predator bites off their heads. Eww!
