Insects are often thought of as tiny and in many instances we don’t usually notice them. They go on making their own little world while they dominate our planet. But some insects are relatively enormous! Can we still ignore them now? We don’t think so!

Unfortunately, sometimes it seems that it’s we humans who are responsible for their diminishing numbers (one of the insects listed here is, in fact, extinct).
