This giant water bug is this week’s feature. It is a chunky beast, often measuring more than 5-cm in length. Their close relatives are often eaten as a snack throughout many parts of the world.
This particular species was included in a piece I put together called ‘The Usual Suspects’ over at Buzz Hoot Roar. This site is the coolest graphical science blog around, do have a wander through their archives – so many great posts!
