This is the rare pink katydid.
Only about one in 500 katydids is pink, making it very rare.
Diet or a genetic mutation causes the reddish over pigmentation.

The dung beetle is one of the biggest and grossest beetles.
And not gross just because it's a giant bug, but because it loves to recycle dung to use as a centerpiece for its home.

New Zealand is home to the giant weta, a cricket-like
Its wingspan is close to 7 inches!
World renowned entomologist (bug studier) Mark Moffett, found the bug after two days for searching an island off the coast of New Zealand.
They used to be all over the mainland but Europeans introduced rats that pretty much killed them.
So when he found the bug, instead of running away screaming like he should have, he let it crawl onto his hand and fed it a carrot.
"She enjoyed the carrot so much she seemed to ignore the fact she was resting on our hands and carried on munching away.
She would have finished the carrot very quickly, but this is an extremely endangered species and we didn't want to risk indigestion."
Moffett, who said the bug weighed as much as three mice (gross) quickly let it go after the picture was taken.
Check out his photo with the creature HERE.

BUT Angelina claims her family's fave treat is crickets!
“My boys love to eat crickets. It’s their favorite thing… When I first gave it to them… I wanted them to not be turned-off by something that wasn’t (part of) their culture. So I bought them… and they ate them like Doritos. And they wouldn’t stop and they brought to-go boxes home. And then I had to actually ban the cricket-eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from eating too many… But they’re good!”
Good for them!
We're gonna go head just keep eating Doritos like Doritos.
