You will run away if you see these insects !

1 . Giant Walking Stick  
The giant walking stick is not a rod used for hiking rough terrain. Nope. These are the longest known insects in the world. A member of the Phasmatodea family, aka Phasmids, these critters are masters of camouflage. They blend right in and look like, well, sticks. Until they actually move. But even their general means of locomotion looks like a twig blowing in the wind.
2 . Queen Alexandra’s Birdwing 
Queen Alexandra’s Birdwing (Ornithoptera alexandrae), is the largest and arguably the most beautiful butterfly in the world. This magnificent species, in which the female may have a wingspan of up to 30cm, was discovered in Papua New Guinea by Albert S. Meek, naturalist to Walter Rothschild, in 1906, and named by Rothschild in 1907 after the wife of Edward VII and mother of George V, (5). Protected by law in Papua New Guinea since 1966, and listed on CITES Appendix I in 1987, this species is severely restricted in its distribution as a result of habitat loss caused by large-scale logging, expanding smallholder agriculture, and oil palm planting.
3. Hedge Grasshopper 
Both sexes look similar but differ in body size. Female individuals can reach up to 60 to 75 millimetres in length, males about 45 to 55 millimetres, hence they count as the largest grasshopper in Australia. Some reports refer a body length up to 90 millimetres. The body colour and pattern varies highly. Adults have a creamy brown to greyish green colouring. The forewings show a black dot pattern, the hindwings are dark grey, sometimes also colourless or light green.At the tibia orange and red spines with black stings are visible.
4. Arthropleura  

Arthropleura is a genus of extinct, 0.3–2.6 metre (1–8.5 feet) long arthropods related to modern day centipedes and millipedes, native to the upper Carboniferous (340 to 280 million years ago) of what is now northeastern North America and Scotland. The larger species of the genera are the largest known land invertebrates of all time, and would have had few, if any predators.
