I beg to differ!

And quite frankly... those are still just their options that draw from real life.
This is a FANTASY game. They aren't limited to the scope of real life options. They could have blue roaches, green roaches, purple roaches, glowing roaches, giant roaches, ethereal roaches, and a dozen other imaginary roaches in between. (Some of which would fit with the names/capture locations of these roaches quite well, in fact.)
I don't believe for a minute that they just CAN'T add more variety to roaches (or other pets). This feels like one of those situations where we could complain about it for years, and the answer we get will always just be "Would you rather we spent developer time fixing old pets, or adding new ones?"
I can't speak for everyone, but my answer is FIXING OLD ONES! (Because in doing so, we're still essentially getting new ones ANYWAY. You can sacrifice some of my 11 clones roaches for some new ones Blizzard. It's okay.
I really hope some dedicated pet collector asks them about this live at the next Blizzcon, because putting them on the spot in a live panel broadcast cross-country always seems to yield better/faster results than just complaining on the forums. (Just ask Red Shirt Guy.)
