And then there are weta's of course. male and female shown here. To give you an idea of scale, the yellow thing is about the size of a 2p coin.

Must have cost you a fortune in resin. They are rather large aren't they. I used to have a very large Grey Huntsman living in the dining room in OZ. You could hear him rattling around at night. They were hard enough to require a sledghammer to kill 'em. They are quite harmless though ( just very very scary).

Weird using Wetas as a plectrum guard.

Regards

- You should try using a weta as a plectrum.... crisp sound but jaggy
