Killik ancestor or Geonosian missing link?

Deep in the jungles of a tiny island off the coast of New Zealand lies a strange creature the likes of which few individuals have ever seen.

What you are about to see is real.

The photo has not been photoshopped.

There is no trick photography.

Baby Killiks do exist.

"Oh it's so cute! He's rubbing forearms with the carrot." Unfortunately the scientist drank some membrosia later on and had a very wild night with the natives.

Yes, that’s a bug eating a carrot. Our experts here at Roqoo Depot believe this is the direct result of what happens when a juvenile Killik is allowed to watch too much Bugs Bunny. The real life expert, Mark Moffett, discovered the insect on Little Barrier Island in New Zealand. It’s called a giant weta, the biggest bug in the world, and this one weighs in a 71g (or 2 1/2 ounces) making it the largest insect ever recorded.

I bet Andrew Zimmerman would love to get a hold of that bug.

After some shady deals with the Kubaz, Andrew Zimmerman, the host of Bizzare Foods commented on the giant weta... "It taste a lot like grasshopper."

Geonosian, Killik, or giant weta, you can check out the news article from the Daily Mail here to see more about the discovery of the world’s largest bug.
