I always thought "palmetto bugs" were these:

They are HUGE and usually not found inside homes. But I see now that "palmetto bug" is being applied to what I think of as regular old cockroaches...

That picture looks more like the ones I am used to seeing. According to some bug websites, there are different variations of the american cockroach. I couldn't find any pics of the one you posted. Very shiny and black. Kind of creepier than the regular American Cockroach.

BEWARE THE MUSKMARE!

The first picture on this thread - the stick bug - can be nasty! My little doggy tried to snack on one and got poison squirt in his eye. It swelled up, and he scratched it raw. We took him to the vet who told us the toxin can ulcerate the cornea if left untreated. After that, I stood back and sprayed them off the screen with poison.

Oh, yeah...the little one on the back is a male mate, not a baby!

Last weekend about 10-15 of them were on the window at my parent's home, with several flying around. The noise they made on the screen was amazing. If mom would have seen them she would have freaked!
