Following the New England Patriots stunning comeback against the Atlanta Falcons, famed quarterback Tom Brady was hailed a force to be reckoned with having won five Super Bowl championship games. But that wasn't so much the case in Atlanta. The city's zoo named a cockroach after Brady after losing a bet with the Roger Williams Park Carousel Village in Rhode Island.
The zoos agreed that the losing side would name a baby animal after the winning team's quarterback. With that said, meet Tom Brady, the Madagascar hissing cockroach.
Native to an island off the southeast coast coast of Africa, the Madagascar cockroaches are rather aggressive, according to a profile compiled by National Geographic. Males use their horns to ram rivals, which unleashes a "hissing" sound that gives the animal its name.
Winning roaches tend to hiss more than losers--perhaps used to determine roach hierarchy and dominance. And unlike traditional cockroaches that scatter urban kitchens, Madagascar roaches are not considered "pests." They live in forests, hiding among leaf litter and logs.
