The Domino Cockroach, also known as the Seven-spot Cockroach and the Desert Cockroach, is one of them. They come from the dry, scrublands of southern India, spending the hot days hidden beneath leaves or buried in loose soil. They are crepuscular, most active around dusk and dawn while avoiding the brightness of day and the darkness of night.

They share their territory with a rather interesting beetle...
I mean, let's face it, if the Domino Cockroach was the size of a tiger, it would definitely be adorning the homes of strange people as a rug on the floor.
