Adventurer Mark Moffett has found the world’s biggest...

  1. text

    Adventurer Mark Moffett has found the world’s biggest insect - which is  so huge it can eat carrots. The former park ranger discovered the giant  weta up a tree and his real life Bugs Bunny has now been declared the  largest ever found. He came across the cricket-like creature, which has a  wing span of seven inches, after two days of searching on a tiny  island. The creepy crawly is only found on Little Barrier Island, in New  Zealand. The species was wiped off the mainland by rats accidentally  introduced by Europeans.
