A Visit to the Cameron Highland Bug Farm

As the title mentions, I visited the Bug Farm.

AHHH!!! It's a dangerous species!!!!!!

This bug was completely hidden and when I looked into the tank, all I saw was a pile of green leaves.

This is the national butterfly of Malaysia. She's lost a bit of her wing because too many people handle them.

This rhinocerous beetle was downright scary and definately belongs on the "dangerous species" list. The legs of the beetle could easily fit around my wrist.

And finally, here is a view of the beautiful BOH tea estate that was enroute to the bug farm.

Ok, that beetle is downright scary! My husband was leaning over my shoulder has decided it is cool. For some reason Japanese boys/men love gigantic beetles. When they are kids, they collect them in large insect cages and keep them as pets. Now he wants to go to Malaysia just so he can find one of those beetles. Geesh.

Oy... too many insects... I was freaked out enough on the bike path this morning, by a bit of runover mush with twiggy bits that looked like antennae.

But I gotta admit, the beetle is kinda cool... and the walking leaf.

I am sure all of these bugs are cool- as long as they are in captivity!!!

I think I would freak out if I saw that beetle in my bathroom one early morning!!!

I mean, we think roaches are bad.....but they are nothing compared to the bug farm.

And you guys didn't get to see the king grasshopper and the walking sticks because my pics came out like crap.

The grasshopper was almost the length of my hand, and the walking stick was about 10 inches long.
