Summary Giant wetas can't jump, which is a good thing because they're gigantic. This ancient animal is the heaviest insect ever found and can weigh as much as a mouse. Its name means 'God of ugly things.' Though these creepy-crawlies are huge and scary-looking, readers learn they aren't dangerous to humans. In fact, these giant insects mostly love carrots. Through colorful photographs of these supersized insects, readers get an up close and personal look at these oversized but harmless bugs.
Subject Wetapunga -- Juvenile literature.
Rare insects -- New Zealand -- Juvenile literature.
