World Largest Discovered Insect

Mark Moffet, a former ranger travelling across the New Zealand discovered a Weta Bug with 3 inches wing span and a weight equal to the weights of three mice. Experts believes that this bug holds the records as the Worlds Largest Discovered Insect.

"Three of us walked the trails of this small island for two nights scanning the vegetation for a giant weta," said Mark Moffett, 55. "We spent many hours with no luck finding any at all, before we saw her up in a tree. The giant Weta is the largest insect in the world, and this is the biggest one ever found."

Moffet held the giant weta bug on his palm on fed the insect a carrot. "She enjoyed the carrot so much she seemed to ignore the fact she was resting on our hands and carried on munching away" The former ranger added.
