Strongest Insect in the World

Strongest Insectin the World

If you want to know the record holder for the strongest insect in the world, then you're in the right place. The tropical species Archegozetes longisetosus is one of the strongest animals in the world, relative to its mass (100 μg). It lifts up to 1182 times its own weight. It's an equivalent of a human lifting 212000 pounds.

On the other hand, rhinocerous beetle can carry 850 times its own weight. To put that into perspective that would be like one of us lifting a 65 ton armoured tank.

Did you know:

The second most dangerous spider is the Southern black widow or Latrodectus mactans, and is a highly venomous species of spider in the genus Latrodectus. The female black widow's bite is particularly harmful to humans because of its unusually large venom glands. The bite of a male black widow is not considered dangerous to humans; it is the bite of the adult female black widow from her much larger venom sacs that has given this spider its dangerous reputation. They are well known for the distinctive black and red coloring of the female of the species and for the fact that she will occasionally eat her mate after reproduction.
