Did you know that a cockroach will live for 9 days WITHOUT its head before it finally starves to death!Eeeeewwwwwww, not for the faint hearted I would say and I class this one as errrr.....disgusting(ok a bit interesting)lol Have you heard or seen? (I wouldnt know where lol) this before? Oh and please dont try this at home, the thought of it is creepy enough;).

Thats nothing...George W. Bush has been running around for years without a brain....LOL, sorry couldn't resist. That really is gross though. I've heard the same type of thing with chickens. After they get their heads cut off they'll runh around for a bit before dying...yuck.

Yes, I knew that and it's one of the reasons I'm sooo grossed out by them! Did you know that they are asexual, meaning they can reproduce alone??? That means 1 can become 100 in a matter of time! ((responding via notify so sorry if someone has already said this...what the heck was myLot thinking when they made the response link direct? We don't know if we should be commenting or responding this way))

well, this is really a good information to get. thanks sweetpeas. i never had any idea before about how long a cockroach will go on living even with it's head off. it's really amazing. thinking that they can last for 9 days without having it's head on. i thought it will just die without it... well, most creatures will die seconds after.
