|MadSci Network: General Biology|
I am a teacher, and I have been searching for the answer to this question for over a year. (While I was student teaching, I noticed a dead roach in the hall- -and it was upside down.) That made me wonder why they flip over, or if they flip over because they die. This question became my "Truly Trivia" question of the week for my kids. I've gotten attempts at answers since then, but I'm still looking for an answer that will convince me.
