Pictured above is a giant weta. Actually, it’s a giant giant weta. You see, giant wetas are, as a species, larger than any other species of insect currently in existence. The one above is the largest particular giant weta, a goliath of goliaths. The specimen was found by former park ranger Mark Moffett on Little Barrier Island in New Zealand, the only place giant wetas are known to currently live. Surprisingly enough, Moffett was actually looking for the bugs, so the discovery was something to be celebrated, not something to be feared and haunted by, as I initially assumed upon seeing the picture. This little gargantuan bugger has a wingspan of about seven inches and weighs about as much as three mice. It also has the ability to eat your dreams and can literally frighten your heart out of your body if encountered unexpectedly. Sauce More sauce I do have to admit that after looking at these pictures for a bit, she’s actually sort of cute, in a blood-curdling sort of way.
