The World Record of making ‘heaviest insect’ in the world has been achieved by the Giant Weta species of New Zealand.

This particular specimen was found by a nature observer and discoverer called Mark Moffett. This insect was found in a remote island of New Zealand called the Little Barrier Island. There are over more than seventy types of Weta species in New Zealand but the Giant Weta is the biggest insect in the world because of its weight. The Giant Weta species resembles a cricket in appearance and is endemic to the Little Barrier Island. This particular insect weighed 71 gms. and had a wing-span of seven inches.GOLDEN BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS.gbwr
