The roach (not the doobie)

    Considering the theory of evolution and survival of the fittest, at what point did the cockaroach decide he had evolved to the max and no longer felt a need for improvement?  And was he right, considering he and his have are believed to have lived through most every supposed geological age?

      Probably about a half hour after one had escaped being stuck in place with no food, having eaten a good percentage of his body. He came out, the other cockroaches were amazed to find this was possible and they had a vote to make sure there were no future mutations which might jeopardize this amazing ability.

      I, personally, think they should have waited until after they'd developed the ability to burp before taking the vote.

      Well it's not a decision that they make. However there are some 4,600 species of cockroaches all of which have evolved to it's environment. Termites have evolved from cockroaches so that particular group (termites) needed to adapt, so they are still evolving and adapting.

      Interesting premise, how do you know the cockroach has stopped evolving? This is important considering it is the crux of your question.
