*Shivers* just watching that. I don't mind the size so much, (although you wouldn't catch me holding it in my hand). It's got too many legs for my liking, reminds me of a spider :o

Wetas are fine. The don't sting or bite, but they can cause discomfort when the climb up the inside of your trouser leg.

Scary looking creatures. Feisty little buggers as well. Lot of them in my garden. Have to be careful before putting hands in dark places.

Oooookkkay.

Well, I am glad that this mildly bug-phobic butt is sitting halfway around the world from that thing.
