The other interesting bug we were able to observe, actually kind of terrifying for me, who is petrified of cockroaches and other creepy crawlies, is called a Giant Water Bug, or Toe-Biter--this bug was truly huge!
Yes, that's my toe in the photo. Appropriate? :) This bug was at least 3 inches long. It was really yucky. Our cats were even scared of its enormously intimidating pinchers!
So there we have it. Just for fun, a little peak into some of our spontaneous science observations we have the opportunity to experience, living in Madagascar.
