    Jesus fucking god almighty. Those things are big. I hate big insects.

    EDIT: Though I am glad a species we thought were extinct turned out to...not be...extinct. Yaay.

    I hate insects, but I found this story to be soooo cute. I'm so happy that those little critters are still on this planet.

    I'd say that reminds me of how I like to cuddle, but I lack that many legs.

    I'm trying to balance my appreciation for biological diversity and these creatures' history with my natural revulsion; it's difficult, to say the least.
