Weta Article

Weta’s have their ears on their front knees and can feel the vibrations of noises around them. You can tell a male and female weta apart because females have a long ovipositor, which looks a bit like a stinger and they use that to lay it eggs.

Weta are large by insects. Some of the giant weta are enormous and are one of the heaviest insects in the world. The weta is sometimes called the dinosaur of the insect world!

There are five different types of weta- tree weta, cave weta, giant weta, tusked weta and ground weta. Altogether there are over 100 different species of weta.  There is a lot weta surrounded around the whole world.

Weta’s are not dangerous, they can’t kill you or harm you. They are nice insects. They can look scary and big for a insect, but they can’t do anything but disturb you!
