Somebody on Twitter sent me a tweet today that read, “You’re so weird, but I like it.” I didn’t quite know how to take that, so I chose to take it as a compliment. I know I share a lot of really strange WTF kind of stuff with you here, but that’s just the way I roll. I can’t help it really. I’m fascinated with people and the world in general, and when I find stuff that makes me go, “Whaaaaaaat?” I always want to rush over here to share it with you. This article is no exception.
We’ve actually written about bugs a lot on Bit Rebels. I don’t know what it is about them that makes them so much fun. I guess ultimately it comes down to the creepy factor. If you love bugs, here are a few articles you can check out: Steampunk bugs, Eating bugs, Sushi bugs and Virtual bugs. Today it’s all about the biggest bugs in the world, and let me warn you, some of them are freaking huge!
Ever since I read a few months ago that every person inhales hundreds of little bugs over their lifetime, I’ve been nervous to fall asleep with my mouth open. Hey, you never know what might be lingering in the shadows of the night, right? For anyone who is super nit picky, I suppose I should specify that some of these are insects, some are arachnids, most are gross, and all are bugs. How’s that for some official biological classifications? Enjoy.
This is number 9, which is your bonus bug. He’s not big, but he’s the baddest and fugliest of all. This tongue-eating louse gets inside another animal’s mouth, avoids being swallowed, and then bites that victim’s tongue and sucks its blood. Mmm… tasty.
