  1. My partner and I went hiking recently and had a similar stinky-experience: We love wildlife of all shapes and sizes, including the creepy-crawly kind. :) We were looking under some bark on a dead tree and Tom uncovered this beautiful black cockroach. He picked it up to take a closer look because it wasn’t a species we were familiar with… and it sprayed the most disgusting, smelly substance on him!!! :D He tried washing it off, but the smell wouldn’t go away. I had to make sure I didn’t walk downwind from him the rest of the way, haha. We looked it up when we got home and, quite fittingly, it was called a ‘stinkroach’ :P

    • Oh no! I’ve never heard of a stinkroach before… I’m going to have to look them up. They sound interesting, at least. :D

  2. What an experience. I probably would’ve freaked out if that bug had appeared at my home… but at least a shower helped :-)

    • It definitely helped a lot. I’m not sure it would’ve without the baking soda, dish soap, and hydrogen peroxide beforehand, though — it was a pretty powerful stink for such a small bug!
