Weta are endemic insects of NZ.

They have 6 spiny legs and you can get different sizes. The little ones can grow up to seven cms. They have curved tusks.

Wetas live in grasslands, forests, caves and under large rocks and under trees.

Male Wetas find a female Weta so they breed. In Autumn and summer, the Weta lays their eggs in Spring they hatch.

Weta usually eat carrots, insects, leaves, butterflies, flies, cockroaches, spiders, beetles, plants and ants.

I think Weta are scary and we had one in our sink.
