When most people see a bug, their reaction is a combination of revulsion and aggression. However, not all bugs are gross enough to stomp. It’s true! There are some insects in the world whose cute factor make them surprisingly WAY less creepy than the rest of their unsettling insect amigos.
Check out all these teeny-tiny, fuzzy-wuzzy creatures.
1.) China Silkworm Moth
Used for their silk production as larvae, the grown up moths look so fluffy and cuddly.
These teeny tiny wasps sure are cute, and…also parasitic to spider eggs.
3.) Red Milkweed Beetle
The bright colors warn predators of their poisonous nature.
4.) Spicebush Swallowtail Caterpillar
You may think it’s staring at you with those big doe eyes, but that is just its skin coloration!
5.) Jumping Spiders
The bouncy bugs have incredible vision thanks to their big beady eyes.
6.) Bumble Bee
There are 250 different kinds of bumble bee, but they’re all fuzzy little cuties.
7.) Eucalyptus Snout Beetle
These eucalyptus munchers caused havoc when they were accidentally introduced in California. Scientists had to control the population using a parasite. Eek.
8.) Puss Caterpillar
It may be the cutest of them all, but this fuzzy wuzzy packs a poisonous punch. The most poisonous in the United States.
9.) Japanese Emperor Caterpillar
They eventually morph into the less goofy and more regal looking Emperor Butterflies, the national butterfly of Japan.
10.) Cross-Eyed Planthopper
Definitely the derpiest bug in existence.
11.) Panda Ant
Not actually related to ants or pandas at all, this wingless wasp has a stinger so painful it’s said that it could knock out a cow.
12.) Spanish Moth
These moths look more like disco divas with their poofy “hair” style and heart-shaped spots.
13.) Feather-Horned Beetle
14.) Monkey Hoppers
Unlike ordinary grasshoppers, these come in all the colors of a bag of Skittles.
15.) Chinese Bush Brown Butterfly Larvae
Also known as the “Hello Kitty” caterpillar, for obvious reasons.
16.) Eucharitid Wasp
These punk-rock parasites feast on baby ants in their larvae state. Hardcore.
Like dragonflies, these dames hang out by the water but don’t have the greatest flying ability.
Kind of makes me want to pull a Honey I Blew Up The Kid scenario and make some of them my pets.
However, because nature can be insane, most of the brightly-colored bugs in the world are actually highly poisonous. If you see one of these cute bugs in the wild, look, but don’t touch!
