We Breed 'em BIG!

If you never saw my spider post - feel free to check it out here! That will give you an idea as the why the title...

Because yesterday I found this:

YEP - that's a GIANT weta... and I mean GIANT! I know that photos don't give you perspective, so you're just going to have to believe me - it was HUGE! It was so big I wasn't even convinced originally that it was a weta, never seen anything like it; but after showing the photos to Hubby he reassured me that it was JUST a weta, and it really wasn't as huge as I was going on about - just a typical giant weta (REALLY???!!!!????)!!!!

I tell ya - we breed 'em BIG out here... not for the faint-hearted!!!!

Fairly standard actually - if you want to know how big a giant weta is, they are mouse sized, but they are way out in the Maheonui hills....

Next time slide a pen next to it and then some perspective would be gained, other than the cats whiskers :-)
