Giant Cave Cockroach

You could say this roach is a little batty! It frequently lurks in caves occupied by bats. Young roaches dive in the bat poop, officially called bat "guano." Found in the Caribbean and in a region extending south from Mexico to Panama and Venezuela, it lives in the rainforest, near logs and hollow trees. They like to eat fresh fruits and decaying plants and animals.
