Even more big-ass bugs

This follows in the line of two of my previous posts: “Big-ass bugs” and “More big-ass bugs“. Maybe I should start a “Japanese Bug” series. Anyway, this one was on the floor of the men’s room at my school. I swear, when I opened the door and I saw it, I jumped and instinctively took a step back. I mean, the thing was moving and I’m pretty sure it was looking at me! I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but I have never seen such a big centipede back in Canada. Just to give you an idea, the pen is 15 cm (6 inches) long. Creepy!

    Eeewww … I moan because my floors get covered by thousands and thousands (no, I am not exaggerating) of small (1.5 inch) black centipedes here in the Canary Islands, but now I have seen this monster I am thinking that I don’t have quite so much to complain about.

    I know I would not have gone as close to it as you did!

    Yeah, thats one big insect but I have lived in Australia where those things made my heart stop. Spiders cockroaches….
    On thew other hand I nearly had a heart attack when I saw a kabuto mushi for the first time. I thought it was a giant cockroach. I wonder how something that is actually quite small fills me with so much fear? I was brave enough to catch it in a Mr. Donuts box and carry it to the local department store to try and sell it though. I was told it wasn’t a popular type and they weren’t interested.

    In Ireland there are no cockroaches, giant beetles or actually any large insects. No snakes, lizards or mosquitos.

    Aah, the dreaded Mukade. Those things are poisonous you know… And the really freaky thing is that they always hunt in pairs. My girlfriend found one in her apartment (in Chiba-ken) and her co-workers wouldn’t let her go back in until they hunted and sprayed for the other one.

    As for your bug series, is Cicada season over?

    I get those bugs in my house every summer!! The start off small, but if I don’t see them and kill them soon enough I think they cannibalise each other. That is the only way I can think of that they can get that BIG living in my house. I have no idea how they get IN my house but they do!

    I live in a mobile home that is at least 21 years old, so it probably has places that bugs can find there way in. :(

    Those are some Big Bugs though aren’t they?
