German cockroach - Blattella germanica - Male
Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado, USA
January 15, 2010
Size: ~15mm
I took pictures, because initially this roach looked different to me than all the other German roaches at work. I think it might have still been getting it's color in from its final molt when I first caught it, because now it looks like a German roach. Since there is no record in BG from Colorado, I'll go ahead an submit this one. Before anyone worries about avoiding my place of employment, I work at a zoo, not a restaurant or hotel :-)
