Five quick facts about the weta.

This is where I got my facts from :

The weta is sometimes called the dinosaur of the insect world

The weta is more primitive than the tuatara. The weta has changed very little in the past 100 million years.

Weta have their ears on their front knees and can feel the vibrations of noises around them.

You can tell a male and female weta apart because females have a long ovipositor, which looks a bit like a stinger, which they use to lay eggs.

The weta is only found in New Zealand and is so old it has outlived the dinosaurs.
