Love bugs or hate them, you'll love this... It reveals the world's biggest bugs, including spiders bigger than a dinner plate, a stick insect longer than your arm, a beetle the same size as a rat, and moths and butterflies larger than a small dog. This title features the biggest swarms and colonies, the deadliest bugs, and the bugs that are best at camouflage and it even includes 4 huge fold-out pages to reveal just how big they really are...
