My New and Unusual Pets! *Warning for people with Bug Phobias*

These are my 3 newest pets! Their names are Yuck, Eww and Eek <3 and they are Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches! They are really interesting pets, they're wingless so they don't fly, they don't bite and they make a really neat hissing sounds!!! I really really like them! I just ordered 4 more, the 10 gallon theyre in is just huge for only 3 roaches!

Not my cup of tea, lol. But that's good that you got a new pet and you're happy with them. :) Good luck with the new ones!

Eeeeewwwwww!! Nooooooo!!!

I would never sleep again just thinking that they might find their way out and crawl up my leg in the middle of the night.

Or on my face. Or anywhere within two feet of me for that matter LOL.

To each his own.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I'm one of those who love to look but the minute something like that gets near me I turn into a screaming mimi. I think my stepmother set me up because she used to freak out if an ant came near her. I'm not quite as bad as that.
