Caption: Giant hissing cockroach (Gromphadorina portentosa) sitting on a rock at the Tsimanampetsotsa National Park in Madagascar. The cockroach is wingless and can reach a length of around nine centimetres. It is found throughout Madagascar where it scavenges on forest floors. It creates its distinctive hissing noise by pushing air through spiracles on its abdomen.
