Call the exterminator, quick!

There are 11 species of giant weta. The largest species of giant weta is the Little Barrier Island giant weta also known as the wetapunga. They are found primarily on New Zealand offshore islands, having been almost exterminated on the mainland islands by introduced mammalian pests. Thanks goodness, the Giant weta prefers a vegetarian diet. Still, I wouldn't want to meet one. (via Full Room)
