World's Heaviest Insect

World's Heaviest Insect

Former park ranger Mark Moffett found the heaviest ever recorded giant weta after two days of searching on a remote New Zealand island. At 71 grams the immense cricket-like insect outweighs a sparrow and is three times heavier than a mouse. The creature, seen in the photo enjoying a carrot, eats plants, other small insects and fruit.
