12 Creepy Crawlies Not To Mess With

Things that have too many legs and make you want to scream. One look at this list and you will sleep with the light on. Forever.

1. Giant Weta

The biggest insect of them all. The heaviest recorded Giant Weta weighed 72g, which is heavier than a sparrow. Luckily, they only live in New Zealand. Deinacrida, their genus name, is Greek for “terrible grasshopper”. No shit.

2. Japanese Giant Hornet

The most lethal animal in Japan, with 40 people dying every year after being stung. Japan, I used to think you were cool.

3. Giant Huntsman Spider

Biggest spider in the world by leg-span. KILL IT WITH FIRE.

4. Goliath Bird Eater Spider

Largest spider by mass. This man is still in therapy.

5. Camel Spider

These spiders can run faster than you and they make a sound like a human screaming when they come for you. They jump, and they bite, and they live in the USA, not just the middle east.

6. Spider Crab

If you hate spiders, you are unlikely to be fond of spider crabs. Spider crabs can have a leg span of up to 12 ft, which is roughly the height of two fully grown men.

7. Giant Coconut Crab

These crabs can crush coconuts with their claws, can grow up to 1m long, and taste good with butter.

8. Brazilian Treehopper

While this little guy is not particularly terrifying, he does have a very handsome hat. The purpose of the Brazilian Treehopper’s head gear is unknown.

9. Giant Water Bug

Giant water bug is pretty self explanatory. And yes, they bite.

10. Giant Isopod

These things are hellishly large, but they live underwater, so they probably can’t kill you.

11. Giant Centipede

Shoe shopping is very expensive for centipedes.

12. Mosquito

Although they don’t look like much, mosquitoes kill over a million people a year by infecting them with malaria, making them the most dangerous animals on Earth.
