See World's Largest Insect : New Zealand's Giant Weta World's Heaviest Insect

A giant cricket-like creature that can eat a whole carrot has been declared the world's the largest ever insect to be found.

The creepy crawly, which weighs a staggering 71 grams and has a wing span of seven inches, has been discovered on Little Barrier Island in New Zealand.

Mark Moffett’s find is the world's biggest insect in terms of weight, which at 71g is heavier than a sparrow and three times that of a mouse.
