Here Are Some Of The Largest Bugs Ever Found On Planet Earth
If you’re a person who really gets freaked-out when you see a large insect, bug, or spider…then this video within this article is not something you’ll want to watch. Bugs serve multiple purposes on this planet. From pollinating plants to stinging and scaring the living daylights out of people, humans have a love/hate relationship with bugs. We need bugs to make the world go around, but at the same time, people would rather not deal with bugs especially if they bite, sting, or chase after you.
It seems that the one common fear that mankind seems to share is the fear of some sort of bug, with spiders being the most common fear known as arachnophobia. The largest bugs in the world were known as the Protodonata, and they lived during the prehistoric period in the Paleozoic Era. They were large, dragon-fly like creatures who ruled the skies and plant life. They would be sure to put a scare in us all if we were to see them today.
This video includes some of the largest bugs in the world. Some of them are so big that you have to wonder whether there was a chemical spill nearby to spawn these mutant-looking bugs. Whether you are enjoying this video from the Amazon, or in the comfort of your home in the suburbs, take caution next time you go outside. Luckily, just because a bug is large, it doesn’t mean that it’s dangerous or poisonous. Take heed, and maybe if you spot a giant weta, you can give it a carrot to enjoy.
A few years ago, a photo of a group of U.S. Marines in Afghanistan shocked the world and sent arachnophobes into high alerts when people saw the massively large camel spider. The story behind the photo was that the camel spider could disembowel camels, crawl into sleeping bags, and run at high speeds. Well, thankfully, the story was just rumor and speculation, and the camel spider wasn’t really as massively large as the photo made it look.
