I wouldn't want a cockroach as a pet, he might get loose and meet a female cockroach and then I will have a mess of little cockroaches all over the place. And they might get into the boric acid I have down for roaches.

Ummm... Ok... I'm pretty sure I'm taking care of few cockroaches without evening meaning to or making them my pets but hey, whatever floats their boat... I guess everybody's definition of a "pet" is different... I know few people who have ant farms... I myself had one as a kid & everyday for about a year, I remember coming home to see how they're doing... I guess those little ants were my pet at the time... It does seem little weird having cockroaches as pets...

pets can be anything under the sun! some people can last with having an almost immobile iguana as a pet .. or a snake... or a tiger... cockroaches are the same. you just have to see something fascinating about the cockroach and you'll enjoy having it as a pet...

not a chance!! That is the most discusting thought that has ever crossed my mind. We're having a bit of a cockroach problem at the moment and they are aweful! I can't stand the sound they make or that you could turn around and one is looking straight at you!

I think that it must be possible just like keeping an ant farm or fish in a tank, but the real question should be why on earth anybody would want to uuuggghh!

well most people who have roaches as pets are using the large exotic species...just distant cousins to the roaches that we are disgusted by seeing run across a counter as we order a lunchtime burger.

Dear it's a bit difficult but not umpossible. Because I think love is most power and if you can do love than you can do anything. So if you provide love to cockroach then difinitely he can make your friends(pet)
