I think I am unique in that I firmly believe that cockroaches are intelligent beyond our understanding. I've seen them 'mourn' the dead. By that I
mean, a large female went up to an infant that I'd just smooshed, and her antennae were drapsed over it, and when I returned the next morning, she
was still there... I made motion to scare it, and she took off.
But a good 12 hours? It wasn't eating it either. Just lay next to it, and that kinda shocked me.
I've seen similar things with them before too..
So I couldn't play with this toy, I have a dirty feeling in the back of my mind every time I kill one of these buggers, but if they are intelligent
enough, they'll learn "NOT IN MY HOUSE BOYO!" eventually.
99% instinct, but 1% something else.. I'll never know, can't stand them anyway lol
