[Yahoo News] Monstrous Insect Discovery (video)

What some are speculating to be the largest insect in the world has been discovered by Mark Moffett, an insect enthusiast from Colorado. The giant weta was found on Little Barrier Island in New Zealand. It is a cricket-like bug that weighs as much as three mice, and it's bigger than some birds. The look of the giant weta, with its 7-inch wingspan, makes some people uncomfortable and queasy.

I don't find it creepy but fascinating!

Not a fan of insects by any stretch...but that is pretty cool. The closest thing to that in my area is an eastern dobson fly. I think we need to breed the OCN insect army with these. biggrin.gif
