The biggest insect a cricket

Adventurer Mark Moffett was on Little Barrier Island in New Zealand when he found this guy. The giant, cricket-like insect was recently declared the world’s biggest and is so large that it eats full-sized carrots. He came across the cricket-like creature, which has a wing span of seven inches, after two days of searching on a tiny island. The creepy crawly is only found on Little Barrier Island, in New Zealand. The species was wiped off the mainland by rats accidentally introduced by Europeans.
