Loved Bug: Some insects make good pets

General February 6, 2013

This undated photo provided by Orin McMonigle shows Gwynevere McMonigle with Dr. Phil, her pet hissing cockroach, Gromphadorhina portentosa. The most common pet roach, the hissing cockroach, is two to three inches long, and its name comes from the sound the insects make when disturbed, although they may lose the habit when they get used to being handled. Hissers make a good display not only due to their size, but also because they don't instinctively hide where they can't be seen. (AP Photo/Orin McMonigle)Children are fascinated by insects, but many of us eventually grow out of wanting to catch a firefly and keep it in a jar. For the people who never lose that urge, though, it can lead in directions that might be surprising.
