Evolution Forgot the Cockroach for ”40- Million” Years

The cockroach does not care about evolution.

Joel Kontinen

Cockroaches have been cockroaches for at least 40 million, possibly even 50 ”million years”. Ancient cockroaches trapped in amber look just like their modern counterparts.

It seems that evolution forgot the cockroach for a long time. Cockroaches were already cockroaches when the alleged ancestors of humans were no bigger than moles.
