Alfie the roach

Lion Learners Alfie cave cockroach


This is Alfie, one of our interesting little Giant Cave Cockroaches. These guys get a bit of a bad reputation, but they’re actually very clean animals. In the jungles of south America you’ll find these creatures inhabiting the floors of caves that have bats. Often thousands of bats. Thousands of bats together under one roof are going to make a lot of mess, and these cockroaches help clean it up! They’re not fussy about the scraps that come their way and will even deal with dead bats, keeping the cave nice and clean for the furry fliers! Without these creepy crawly custodians of the caves bats would have a hard time being safe and healthy in such crammed crevices.
