Let's Call Him Calvin

A little more than a year ago, I ordered Mac a pet.  Her name is Becky.  She is a Madagascar hissing cockroach, and is the easiest pet on the planet, hands down.
Two months after her arrival, Princess wanted to know how all the little roly poly bugs got in her cage.  No, they weren't really roly polys.  And there were about two dozen of them.  We re-homed a few, donated a bunch, and kept one baby, named Caitlynn.  We knew she was a girl because boys have distinctive horns, and Caitlynn didn't.  It was confirmed by the fact that a year later, we had no babies.

Until today.  Caitlynn is now........lets call him Calvin.

Anyone want a baby hissing cockroach?

I thought that bug was cute until you told me it was a cockroach :).

Our boys would love it.
