Warming: ’25 Creeping Crawling Creatures You’d Hate To Find In Your Bed’ will keep you up, scared! It’s 2 AM. You are snuggled in your bed within your soft fluffy comforter when suddenly you feel something. It seems to be “walking” on your legs, making it’s way towards your chest. In a panic, you remove your comforter only to have your worst fears confirmed. There it is, staring back at you, rubbing its creepy forelimbs, seemingly delighted it has ruined your night (and possibly your life) forever. What could it be? If I had to take a guess, I would say it’s one of these 25 Creeping Crawling Creatures You’d Hate To Find In Your Bed.
Thorny Devil Stick Insect
The thorny devil stick insect (AKA: giant spiny stick insect) is a vegetarian that can reach lengths of up to 15 cm (6 inches). It’s normally harmless to humans, but that still does not negate its creepy appearance.
Able to lift more than 850 times their own weight (that’s about 72.25kg) and capable of reaching lengths of up to 17cm (6.75 in), the Hercules Beetle is aptly named. Impressive to say the least, but still not a good bed fellow.
Also known as the waterbug, the American cockroach is the largest species of common cockroach reaching lengths of up to 4cm (1.6 in) and about 7mm (0.28 in) tall. This critter is also considered one of the fastest running insects, able to run at 5.4 km/h (3.4 mph) (about 50 body lengths per second). That’s like a human running at 330 km/h (210 mph). Since this is a bug commonly found in many households across America, you may want to go check your bed right now; you may already have a few cockroaches in there…
Giant African Millipede
Growing up to 38.5 cm (15.2 in) and sporting 256 legs, the giant African millipede is one of the largest millipedes in existence. While this millipede is not particularly dangerous or deadly to humans, it is not an insect you’d want to see in your bed.
Giant Huntsman Spider
Eight eyes, eight legs, and all sorts of scary, the giant huntsman spider can reach a leg span of 250-300 mm (about 10-12 in), the largest leg span of any species of spider. I don’t know about you, but if I were to find this thing on my bed… well, let’s just say there would not be enough fire in this world.
