As with other insects, many tissues of the cockroach can be regenerated, including eyes, antennae, cerci, and exoskeletal features, all of which regenerate over a number of moulting cycles. The cockroach has specially hinged legs which, like a lizard’s tail, are designed to break off if needed as a form of defence. The cockroach can then withhold its moulting cycle to allow optimal leg regrowth.
