Cockroaches have an outer skeleton. (True or False)



Cockroaches do not have bones inside their bodies, instead they have a skeleton made of plates on the outside of its body. The cockroach skeleton resembles a suit of armour which covers the entire insect. Unlike bone that is made of collagen and calcium, the cockroach exoskeleton is made of a substance known as chitin. Chitin is a hard material covered with a wax—like layer, which helps conserve the water inside the insects’ body.
