The Top Ten

1 Spider Spider

It really depends on the type of spider. - Powerfulgirl10

This misunderstood little guy is actually an amazing animal. Some spider species have unique abilities like the Darwin's bark spider who produces webs that are 5 times stronger than a kevlar, and a kevlar is 5 times stronger than steel! Some also have amazing colors, like the peacock spider. Some have unique patterns too, like the black widow spider (red hourglass pattern on abdomen) and Hawaiian happy-face spider (cute smiley face on abdomen). Also, not all spiders are venomous and not all of them are aggresive either (but some are both very aggresive and venomous, so just be careful) - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

2 Jewel Beetle

A jewel beetle, or a metallic wood-boring beetle, is a beetle that belongs to the family Buprestidae. Its most notable feature is its beautiful iridescent colors. When you see one, you're seeing both a beetle and a rainbow - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

3 Butterfly Butterfly Butterflies are part of the class of insects in the order Lepidoptera, along with the moths. Adult butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight.

One of the most colorful insects. Its color variation ranges from plain brown or white with no patterns to colorful wings with unique patterns. It's also very useful for the enviroment; it pollinates flowers - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

4 Moth Moth Moths comprise a group of insects related to butterflies, belonging to the order Lepidoptera. Most lepidopterans are moths; and there are thought to be approximately 160,000 species of moth, many of which are yet to be described.
5 Scorpion Scorpion

An amazing arachnid with cool "weaponries" which are a pair of huge pinchers and a venomous tail. Good news: while the sting is painful, it's not that harmful to humans and only 25 species known are able to kill humans - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

6 Bee

This little adorable insect is very helpful to the invorement; It pollinates flowers. Don't be fooled by the cuteness, some species can be aggresive. The Africanized honey bee for example. It chases anyone who disturbs it up to 400m away, and the sting is painful and can be fatal - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

7 Horseshoe Crab


8 Mantis

An amazing insect. It's nicknamed as "praying mantis" because it folds its arms when resting, like it's praying. Some species are very beautiful, the devil's flower mantis for example - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

9 Wasp

This close relative of the bee is a pretty misunderstood animal. It's useless? Nah, wasp does have uses: some species pollinate flowers while the others control other insect population. And it won't attack you for no reason (like other animals, attack humans only when threatened). There's a wasp with an amazing "superpower": the voodoo wasp. It can mind-control and turn other small animals to "zombies" - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

10 Grasshoppers Grasshoppers

Similar thing to the mantis. It's an amazing and beautiful insect. Be careful, some of the most beautiful species are poisonous - BlueFrostOfThunderClan
