There is a smaller version of the weta, which is more common, as the Giant Weta is quite rare and also considered endangered. This insect is not known be be anywhere else in the world.
The Giant Weta is the largest insect in the world and was first found by a former park ranger who found the insect on a tree in New Zealand. The large insect has a wing span of seven inches and can weigh as much as three mice. The species is endangered and became endangered when Europeans accidentally introduced rats that threatened the Weta’s existence.
The second largest insect is the Giant Burrowing Cockroach. Native to Australia, the insect can grow over three inches and weight up to 35 grams. The Giant Cockroach give birth to live youngs and mainly live off of leaves. They contribute to the ecosystem by breaking down leaves and have been found to be good pets. These creatures can live up to ten years!
