Bugs oh my!

There are lots of crazy insects we've never seen before here...and some I hope to never see, like the Mukade (giant centipede) and the Japanese Giant hornet. I HATE spiders and we have a few here around the house, but they are the good kind that eat bugs. Luckily they are tiny--lots of people have huntsman spiders which are giant and furry!

This guy was really cool--a Hummingbird Hawk-moth. It flies just like a hummingbird and is about the same size!

This Japanese Beetle came home with Igor one day
He was really quite pretty
Giant caterpillar Igor saw

A pretty spider (known as juro-gumo in Japanese) that lives at our house. She is huge but hangs out on her web so I'm ok with that. 
Giant nasty cockroach

No idea what this guy was
