    I love all animals but absolutely hate insects. To the point, my fear of moths and butterflies is my biggest phobia. Sorry mate

    Granted moths are a bit wird as they prefer old fashioned things, but butterflies? related to the super cool dragonfly because they hang about near ponds.
    The small jumping spider is also very cool as are beetles who carry all sorts of colours on thier back like an exact kenyan flag i saw once.

    Saw one fighting a giant Wasp years ago, no great battle. Just cut the * right in half!

    Tarantula hawk. Injects venom into tarantulas which puts them into a state of paralysis, then lays it's eggs to hatch inside the tarantula.
