Anyone who knows me in real life would know that I really really do not like insects. Like, really. Ever since I chewed on a full-sized adult cockroach in my sleep when I was but a wee child (waking with half a masticated roach still in my mouth), I’ve never been able to not cringe in terror and grossed-out-ness when I’m in the same room as any insect (generalised fear, yo).
Of course, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who abhors creepy crawlies. Still, one must always look on the bright side of life. So, take a look at the 16 largest insects in the world and be happy you’re not living near one of these.
