Fandex: Bugs by Sarah Goodman, Louis Sorkin


Fandex: Bugs by Sarah Goodman, Louis Sorkin

This is a perfect marriage: bugs, kids, and Fandex. Meet South America's Hercules Beetle, as big as a dollar bill and the strongest creature on earth, able to lift 850 times its body weight (that's like a 100-pound person lifting four school buses). The Black Widow Spider, whose females, contrary to reputation, rarely eat their mates. And the wonderfully bizarre Walking Stick, sometimes called 'Frankenstick' for its ability to reattach its own severed head. Plus Treehoppers and Leafhoppers, centipedes and millipedes, stealthy Assassin Bugs, and twelve thousand varieties of ant.
