hey, your jewelry is making a break for it

How about an unusual pet today?

How about the Madagascar hissing cockroach?

They're 2-3 inches long. They move slowly, are docile, don't bite, and don't smell. They don't fly, either. The hissing part happens when they're disturbed or handled, and it's quite distinctive. This creature really has serious fans.

And, if you're Jared Gold, they make trendy and unusual brooches. Which you need to keep moist and fed.

More on the care and feeding of the non-jewelry cockroach here.
