Return of the big-ass bugs!

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

Well, it had been a while since I had seen such startling creatures (cf. Big-ass bugs one, two, and three), but here’s another one. It looks like a spider with antennae!? My colleagues told me it’s called “kamadouma” in Japanese, but I have no idea what it is in English. Creepy!

Edit: With the help of some of my colleagues I discovered that it was an insect part of the orthoptera order (grasshoppers, locusts, etc.), and most probably a member of the weta family.
