The giant weta is one of the world's largest insects and resembles an overgrown cricket/cockroach hybrid. This insect is relatively harmless and is rarely found outside it's incredibly isolated island home. They can weigh as much as 2.5 oz and are as long as 4 inches, making it the heaviest known insect in the world.
This hand sized horror is the state insect of New Mexico and comes by its name honestly - it eats tarantulas. Their stingers can be as long as 1/3 of an inch and the sting is rated as one of the most painful in the world. Luckily, this creature is relatively docile, preferring its diet of flower nectar and tarantulas.
Japanese Giant Hornet
This abominable creature is not only large, but violent. If aggravated, this living missile can chase a person for up to 3 miles. It has a wingspan of 2.4 inches and loves the taste of honey, making it a natural pest to bee farmers across most of Asia. When one hornet stings something , it sends out a pheromone signal to the rest of the hive to target its victim - making this pest incredibly dangerous for people and other animals alike.
Giant Camel Spider
If you find yourself in a desert setting, check your surroundings - camel spiders love to crawl into dark spaces! While not actually spiders, this insect elicits high amounts of fear due to its appearance. It can grow to 6 inches, and is indigenous to most desert regions around the world - the Southwestern United States included. Don't worry, they aren't venomous, and rarely attack humans.
The Titan Beetle is a huge shelled creature - growing up to 7 inches! Their jaws are strong enough to snap pencils, which shows that their bite could cause some serious damage. Rather than simply attacking when provoked, this large insect hisses, emitting a warning sound before it attacks.
