Animal Quest Episode 14: Madagascar Hissing Cockroach Edition

Meet Alveus' Madagascar Hissing Cockroach colony, Barbara and Baked Bean. Understand why cockroaches and other invertebrates are so important to our ecosystem, why we find detritivores in dirty places, and how they're actually here to help us.

Each episode of Animal Quest introduces you to an ambassador at Alveus and teaches you about them as well as their species as a whole. We'll look at their importance to the world around us, the risks and misconceptions their species faces, and what we can do to help them.
