Mushi

These ENORMOUS bugs are really popular right now in Japan (well, at least in the part of Hokkaido where we lived)--kids keep them as pets, they are commonly featured on different advertisements, and there are even several different video games with the bugs fighting each other. They're several inches long (much bigger than I think bugs should be allowed to be) and they have absolutely revolting larvae (the size of my thumb!) I took this picture of one of the many for sale in Homac (shh! Don't tell! You aren't allowed to take pictures there we have found out!)
