Prehistoric Cockroaches

Millions of years ago, cockroaches weren’t scary, they were just as ordinary as they are now. Scuttling along under the feet of dinosaurs, these roaches lived in the Triassic period, a time when the biggest thing on Earth was the Sauropods and Pangaea still roamed. Some experts speculate that cockroaches, along with termites and beetles, might be the oldest surviving insect species. As opposed to butterflies and grasshoppers, which have evolved rapidly in recent geologic times, cockroaches are believed to have changed very slowly or not at all for over 300 million years. These insects are hardy and adaptable; they can consume just about anything organic and have survived every plague humanity has attempted to launch against them. It is estimated that there are approximately 4,000 species of cockroaches on our planet, divided in to 2 suborders: Blattodea (which are commonly known as the “true” cockroaches) and Dictyoptera (“short-winged”) which includes the termites, wood-eating cockroaches, and raft-building cockroaches.

Prehistoric Cockroaches

The prehistoric cockroach is a unique creature. It has been around for millions of years and has changed very little since it first appeared on Earth. The prehistoric cockroach is an insect that can be found in caves and other dark places. It is also known as the cave cricket, but it is not related to crickets at all.

The prehistoric cockroach has wings that allow it to fly short distances, but most of the time it crawls around on the floor looking for food. It does not eat meat; instead, it prefers plants and fruit. The prehistoric cockroach has two antennae on its head where there are tiny hairs that pick up smells from the air around them so they can find their way around new places quickly!

The prehistoric cockroach spends most of its life underground where there are fewer predators than above ground so it won’t get eaten by other animals which means they live longer lives than most other insects do!

From the prehistoric cockroaches that are thought to have had wings to the modern cockroaches that run away from you at night, these bugs have been around for a very long time.

Cockroaches are insects that have been around for nearly 300 million years. There are more than 4,000 species of cockroaches found all over the world, including Antarctica and even in the oceans. Most cockroach species live in forests and other areas where there is a lot of moisture. Most species prefer to live in dark places where they can hide from predators.

There are several different types of cockroaches: American, German (also called European), Australian, brownbanded, oriental (also called water), smokybrown (also called brown), Oriental banded and smoky brownbanded.

The American cockroach is one of the largest types of roaches found in North America. It gets its name because it was first discovered in New York City in 1625 by Peter Minuit and brought to Europe by settlers on ships from Africa or Asia. The wings on this species are reduced to stubs or absent altogether. Its body is tan or brownish-gray with two black stripes running down its back; its legs are yellow-brown or gray.
