Newly Revealed World’s Longest Insect

by Carl Jackson April 30, 2018

 

A stick insect almost 2 feet long has been discovered in China and is the world’s longest insect.

The insect blends in with a tree twig so it’s virtually unnoticeable.

According to Chinese news reports, the stick insect measured over half a meter and was found in southern China.

The insect has surpassed the previous record holder, a Malaysian stick insect of around 56.7cm, discovered in 2008 which is now on display in London’s Natural History Museum.

Keep stick insects and other creepy crawlies out of your home, ensure your doors and windows are covered by insect screens.
