    I love beetles and i myself managed to play with the some on this list a rihnosorous beetle, a little goliath beetle, etc... But probably the only beetle i hate os the titan i repeat handle those things with care or better yet dont even touchem they pack a bite a big one, and their neck area also can cut your skin, we used to have dozens of those flying around back then but we dont see anymore these days i dont know why and thats quite sad but if im being honest thank god theyre gone i dont care about the looks i care about what they can do

    I'm sorry but the tarantula the big ass wasp was carrying out of the hole is not the nightmare fuel, the big ass wasp that can drop a grown man to his knees screaming is what gives nightmares nightmares.

    Pro tip: When you attempt to make an interesting video about giant insects, you should avoid comments like "nightmare makers" and "Ew, kill it with fire", lest you come off as a jackass and get a dislike on your video.
