  • that's scary looking but also cool looking. i never knew an insect would have furry legs like this one.

  • I've always been fascinated by insects, and pretty much all creatures. I actually almost got into Entomology but now instead my major is Zoology. i want to work with mammals. If you look at my other work you will see many different insects and animals. Thank you for your comment.

  • I love all of the details you can see, like the furry legs, the 'claws' and those awesome eyes! He looks prehistoric in a way...And it's amazing that you researched it and shared your research in your comments. Wish I could give you MORE than a five!!
