If You See This Bug One Day, Don't Squish It!

If You See This Bug One Day, Don't Squish It!

So you’re at home, enjoying your evening tea under a warm blanket, when all of a sudden you see a huge — no, enormous! — mosquito. Its long and gangling legs have a span of your palm, and it clumsily bumps into all the obstacles it meets. Despite its awkward appearance, it’s still terrifying! What if it carries malaria? Slowly, not to draw the monster’s attention to yourself, you get out from your soft chair and run for it into the bathroom, lock yourself in there, and open the browser on your phone.

While googling, you get engrossed with reading up on some other weird and crazy bugs. For example, here’s the human-faced stinkbug. No, they don’t really stink, at least for humans. Here’s a titan beetle next! It’s the largest beetle in the whole world: it can grow as long as your entire palm, complete with fingers! Here’s an Atlas moth that looks like they have three heads, two of which are serpent’s. They’re sometimes called cobra moths. There are 10 quintillion insects on Earth at all times and the critters on this list can fight to be named the “Strangest Bug Ever”.
