Do you know how many insects are currently crawling over the planet? No? Neither do scientists. That’s because these six-legged creatures are so plentiful that entomologists are fairly certain that they haven’t even gotten close to cataloguing all the insanely exotic insects living among us.

From the stomach-turning and gross to ridiculous and strange, the insects catalogued are so numerous and so diverse in the way they approach survival that they make literally every other species on the planet seem mundane by comparison, practically defying reality itself. You can’t believe the ways nature has crafted its smallest denizens. 

Here, for your consideration, are some bug pictures that just might blow your mind hole right open.
