Bugs in Asia

There are some big insects in Southeast Asia. The Pharnacia kirby stick insect of the rainforests of Borneo is the world's longest insect. According to the Guinness Book of Records, one specimen had a body length of 12.9 inches (20 inches including legs). A 10-inch grasshopper capable of leaping 15 feet lives along the Thailand-Malaysia border. Fortunately, I have not come across these monsters. The one in the picture was fierce looking enough!
No, no no! It looks like a rhino but I would rather see a rhino!
I don't want to see the flying giant grasshopper either. An excellent shot though! :)

This one looks quite threatening although probably not 12 inches! Great shot of it

What an interesting exoshell and horny legs. Not bad to see from a distance but sure wouldn't want it crawling on me.
