    $\begingroup$ This is a cockroah, but you need to update your post with more details to get a definitive ID. Please edit your post to include your location, the size of the specimen, and any additional pictures you have of it (e.g., its underside). $\endgroup$ – theforestecologist Feb 13 at 18:44
