  • I believe this is a Brazilian Salmon Pink Bird-Eating tarantula, quite a mouthful. Despite the name, there is little reason to believe these spiders catch birds. They are considered the third larges spider in the world and are endemic to the Atlantic forest region of Brazil. Females can live 15-20 years, with males having a much shorter span of roughly 2 years.

  • Malayan Jungle Nymph, the un-evolved form of the Malayan Stick Insect. They hold the record for largest egg laid by an insect, and I can see why. Their eggs are about half an inch long, and can take over a year to hatch. They live about 2 years in captivity.

  • The Giant Black Stag Beetle is the third longest lived stag beetle, with their life cycle lasting a few years. This beetle is believed to be an aphrodisiac, and is also highly valued for sport, decoration and as a pet. Due to it's commercial value, it's export is criminalized in some regions.
