Video: Model Cockroach Kitchen


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

If you fear cockroaches, you might want to skip this video. It provides an encounter with the Insectarium's notorious Roach Kitchen -- part educational exhibit and part horror movie.

The roaches, though big and intermittently active, are not up to anything very extreme. City-dwellers may not be impressed -- it's hard to be shocked once a cockroach has lapped up your sleep drool and eaten your foot calluses. But instead of fleeting glimpses as they slide back under your fridge, you can stare down this bunch crowd-friendly roaches for hours. [1:00]
