  1. Who would of thought that a quiz about cockroaches could be fun. You did it. Wow, I had no idea they were a species of frog. That blew my mind, and the last one really made me laugh. I got three of them incorrect. Numbers 8,11 and 12. Great quiz!!!

    • After reading the comments I realized I read number 12 wrong and thought you asked if they were a species of frog. hahaha. Whew, that would of been really weird. So, if I wouldve read it the right way I would’ve answered correctly. I did know there is a species that could fly. My son and I were walking one evening I was behind him, when out of a tree came this huge winged cockroach and landed on his back. I just yelled and said take your shirt off NOW. haha

      • In reality, you missed two. I don’t know why I wrotw frog instead of cockroach.
        I understand the feeling. You were repelled by its sight. I would prefer the roaches that don’t fly than those that fly.
        If a cockroach has ever crawled on your body, I can imagine the sensation you will feel. I hate that feeling.

  2. I’m not sure what question 12 has to do with the subject in question!

    I had a terrible experience with cockroaches when i did a job of work in Moscow back in 1977. I stayed for a few weeks with the British Cultural Attache in his flat in a block that was occupied entirely by diplomatic staff from many countries, and all the flats were infested with coakroaches. You always had to make sure that the light was on before you got out of bed, otherwise you could easily step on a cockroach!

    One evening we got back late and walked into the kitchen without turning on the light. When we did so, we could see that every wall was black with thousands of cockroaches. Within a few seconds they had all disappeared as they scuttled away behind the cupboards!
