The wetapunga, or giant weta, is the heaviest insect in New Zealand which can weigh anything up to 50 grams. It is the largest of the 11 species of giant weta, and of the 100 plus species of weta endemic to New Zealand.

This video was shot using an iPhone 4s with stills on that and a Nikon D3s. It was all cobbled together using iMovie for iPad.

Many thanks to Maegan McDowell of maeganmcdowell.com for the iPhone video capture.
