Such huge species of weta, giant wetas, can be found in New Zealand. They are examples of island gigantism.

 

Large species can be up to 10 cm (4 in), without legs and antennae included, with body mass usually no more than 35g. However some insects can reach a mass of about 70 g (2.5 oz).

They are so gentle and just wanna be left alone most of the time. The spikes on their back legs will mess your foot up if you stand on one though. And they taste like peanut butter. =P

They are beautiful. I'm pretty sure they are much more valuable to the planet Earth than humans.
