We wouldn't want to be her actual children!
A woman who lives in a rural region of China considers the 100,000 cockroaches that she breeds inside her home more than just her job… she sells the cockroaches to a pharmaceutical company who use the bugs for medicine.
The 37-year-old woman named Yuan Meixia is SO close to these cockroaches that she actually considers them her children!
Here's what she said:
“These are all my children, my babies.”
The woman certainly treats them as well as most parents treat their children. She feeds them, makes sure there aren't any holes inside the house for the cockroaches to escape from, and she even keeps the house always at a comfortable temperature.
The only thing is this lady actually makes her money off of the cockroaches, and she does that by drowning them in water before letting them dry out in the sun.
So, yeah, like we mentioned before — we wouldn't want to be her kids!
However since the cockroaches are always breeding, she usually has at least 100,000 of them roaming around at any given time!
Thank goodness, ha!
