Weta

Tree weta

 

It's not often that you'd see a weta, and certainly not around a suburban area.

So I thought you might like a photo (above) and a short video (below) of one that was spotted feeling it's way around the beach house.

They look quite fierce with their barbed legs, pincers; and long antennae thrashing about like swords.

 

For more about the NZ native Weta see Wikipedia.

 

 

We can't forget to mention the film studio behind Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit shares the namesake - Weta Digital
