It’s a bug’s life, and even cockroaches grow up to be dads, too. Despite their infamy for being gross and dirty bugs, cockroaches are actually meticulously clean and it’s up to the dads to build the nest to raise the young. And once the young are born, new cockroach fathers will ingest bird poop to feed to their larvae to get them the nutritional nitrogen they need. (Okay, so maybe that is a little gross and unclean.)
