No, because it doesn't have enough similarities to a mammal. For one, it has an exoskeleton. They don't have lungs, or hair. It's still a cockroach, still an insect.

Like a platypus it's not exactly what you'd first expect, the cockroach is still a bug just how it gives birth isn't normal, just like how the platypus lays eggs and is still a mamal
