There are more than 4500 known species of cockroaches, and each cockroach is slightly different from the other in appearance, habitat, size, reproduction cycle, etc.
All cockroaches lay eggs in a single case known as ootheca. Each ootheca contains many eggs depending upon the roach species, but each egg has one roach nymph inside it. For example, the German cockroach eggs produce up to 48 baby roach nymphs, and the American roach produces up to 16 baby roaches.
