Another fascinating part of field herping, along with all the other natural wonders we encounter, is the invertebrates! This forum is dedicated to both field and captive invertebrates.

MEGA-SIZED!

Sharing two giants of the Arthropod world.

First up, Thyropygus sp, (Giant Millipede)
Doesn't look big in this picture, maybe the next picture would help you figure it's size out. :P

Comparing it to a regular sized millipede. Not good enough? Next picture.... :lol:
Image
Here, this would do... And I have large hands, so just measure 26 cm on your ruler if your still unsure. ;)

Next up, the Attacus Atlas, (The Atlas Moth), with a wingspan of 22 cm! :shock:
