2009 Insect Fair 4

A newly-molted cockroach is seen in its enclosure during the Great Insect Fair on Saturday, Oct. 3. The insect had shed its old skin just minutes before, and will slowly regain a dark color, according to its owner and entomologist Mary Gall, not pictured. For scale, the large piece of wood on the left is approximately the diameter of a pencil.
