And here's the biggest bug in the world

OK, an isopod is not technically a bug. So this thing that came up from over 2,500 meters down is not an insect or a spider. It's a stunning specimen of Bathynomus giganteus, a relative to the common woodlouse or pill bug on land. Add this nearly meter-long creature to the list of things I definitely don't want for a pet.
