A cockroach can live for a week without it's head!

Due to their open circulatory system and the fact they breathe through tiny holes on their body segments, they don't rely on their head to breathe!

A cockroach can hold its breath for 40 minutes, and can even survive submerged under water for half an hour!

They often hold their breath to regulate water loss.

They can run up to three miles in an hour!

A newborn cockroach can run almost as fast as it's parents!
