Few roaches rival the fuzzy goodness of a female black velvet roach. The nymphs are considerably fuzzy as well, sporting a thin coat of barely visible orange-ish fur. Groups of adults and nymphs will cluster together, presumably as a means of enhancing the intimidation factor of their already hefty quinone-based chemical defenses to potential predators. I once tried to feed a nymph to a fire-bellied toad; he spat it out faster than he caught it.
