Weta look like large, flightless versions of their cousins the grasshoppers and crickets....The weta is more primitive than the tuatara and so old, it has outlived the dinosaurs! In fact, the weta has been around for nearly 200 MILLION YEARS! Although they are preyed upon by lizards, tuatara and moreporks, in the absence of efficient predators weta became large and flightless occupying niches similar to mice elsewhere in the world. The giant weta is even the same size as a mouse.

If it can eat a whole carrot, imagine what it would do to your finger.
