Comments from the Rating System

  • Buffalo Zoo: No-touch and must be displayed in a carrier
  • Zoo New England, Stone Zoo: Caribbean cockroaches are much faster and more difficult to handle than their “cousins” from Madagascar. While we have a tank-full on exhibit, we rarely handle them for the public.
