How large is the giant weta? This enormous grasshopper weighs about as much as three full-grown mice and grows to be 4 inches (10 cm) long! These long-legged insects are so heavy that they can't jump like other grasshoppers. Instead, they walk or crawl to move around. These are just some of the surprising facts children will discover as they explore the fascinating world of these giant grasshoppers. In Giant Weta: The World's Biggest Grasshopper, eye-popping color photos paired with simple, grade-appropriate text will engage children as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, life cycle, and behavior of this supersized animal. A comparison diagram is also included to show readers the animal in relation to a familiar object.
