Madagascar hissing cockroaches (aka hissers, giant roaches) are fascinating insects. They are easy to care for, odor free, and don't bite. They grow to around four inches and adult males have small horns on top of their head. The hisser gets its name from the sound it makes when trying to scare off predators. They push air out of vents in their abdomen which creates a hissing sound. Hissers will also make that sound when irritated. They seem to enjoy being petted at times and will move their body in response to where you rub them. View our caresheet for more info.
Due to state laws, roaches cannot be shipped to Florida.
