Forest Roaches are man-sized cockroaches that can separate the meat from the bones of even a full-grown deer with razor-sharp claws. Since they are not hostile to Salvani, but attack humans immediately, they are also called man-eating beetles.
They prefer to live in jungle areas, as they occur extensively on the worlds of the insect people. They eat almost everything they can find. Rain drives them into their caves and they fear fire. Carter Sanders encountered some of these species during survival training on Punikah.
