DID YOU KNOW……….that the world’s largest insect, the Weta, is so huge it eats carrots? Former park ranger, Mark Moffett, of Colorado, searched for and found the creature, which looks like a giant insect (see photo), on a small island off of New Zealand. The insect is not found on the mainland of the bigger island, where they were all eaten by rats. It has a seven inch wingspan and is said to weigh “the equivalent of three mice.” It is supposed to be the largest insect recorded.
