Afraid of beetles? It could be worse...
 
People were posting about beetles earlier... I'm not particularly afraid of beetles... I'd run screaming if I saw one of these though-

Good thing I don't live in tasmania- home of one of the largest crab species- the Giant Coconut Crab

Wondering how big that tree is? Here's something for comparison...
