  1. I have literally killed hundreds of these fuckers with my shoes… also who the hell is intimidated by a cricket?? Lol really 🤣😂

  2. Jumping is one of their defense mechanisms, but not to scare us, rather to evade us. Things critters know that they are no threat to us, but we are a big threat to them, so they just plan on getting the frick away from you. Same goes for any other creature. Just remember, mankind was put in charge.

  3. These are in dark souls just babies, go to the tomb of giants these things grow into man eating things they grow massive

  4. I thought they where some kind of species of katydid.
    Also, why do people find these things scary? They're just bugs.

  5. Man I’m getting tired of these bugs that think they can invade homes and set up camp, like no, go build your own houses

  6. bitch i fucking woke up one morning and looked down at my dog and he was laying right by my wall and i looked behind him and i saw one of these motherfuckers on the wall and i never got up so quickly. I shit y’all not this hoe was bout 4-5 inches big! w the legs n shit. i could not believe my eyes i grabbed my dog in fear the demon was gon leap on me but now i understand why he didn’t bc he prolly ain’t see me ANYWAYS he ended up dying but i still to this day could not! leave me be please i hate those ugly mfs

  7. Actually had a lot of these in the basement of a house,they’re alright. Though I was in the basement bathroom one day and 3 of these were in front of me looking at me. Awkward dump since I am scared of them but not enough like I fear like burning them or whatever ever they are peaceful after all

  8. One of these things jumped on me in the shower about a week ago it landed on my leg so I started swiping my legs in a panic thinking it’s a huge ass spider. When I knocked it off it stared jumping at me in the bath tub while I was sipping all over the place trying to get out that shit was creepy af
