Follow-Up: Big damn bugs.

In the last Link Proliferation post, I included a link to a story about the Australian giant burrowing cockroach. The story claimed - and I passed along said claim - that the beast was possibly the world's heaviest bug.

Not even close, say Queen o' the Macabre Chris Quigley. She's got a post running down the biggest bugs and topping her list is the enormous Goliath Beetle (see above), which weighs in at 115 grams or about a fourth of a pound.

OMG! That is not a bug....that is ...I am not sure, but no bug should weigh that.

What does it eat? Cats, dogs, small children....no so small children? :D

Thanks for sharing. That is creepy!

Cheers!
