Hissing Cockroaches are ground dwelling creatures native to the tropical island of Madagascar. These unique wingless cockroaches produce hissing sounds that can be heard up to twelve feet away. The aggressive males have large horn-like bumps protruding behind their head. They use these horns in combat with other males. Females have only small bumps and are not aggressive. Hissing Cockroaches breed readily in captivity.
