Monday Morgue: 23rd November 2009

American cockroach (Periplaneta americana)
Tanah Merah, 23rd August 2009

Despite its name, the American cockroach did not originate from the Americas. Instead, it is likely to be originally native to Africa, from which it has managed to spread and colonise much of the world.
