Finger Puppet – Australian Native Giant Burrowing Cockroach




Australian Native Cockroach Finger Puppet by Folkmanis.  Measures 9.5cm x 7cm.  A plaything for children and adults alike.

In the children’s book section there’s a book called ‘Doug the Bug’.  It’s the story of two children who find one of these cockroaches under the bed.  A very funny story.  The Australian Native Giant Burrowing Cockroach makes an excellent pet.  Found in Queensland (which is a bit ironic if you are a state of origin footy fan), they eat eucalypt leaf litter from the bush floor.  They are also the world’s largest cockroach, growing up to 75mm in length and living up to 10 years of age.
