Large Bakukang

December 21, 2007

Its my first time to see a beetle as big as this.

Here in the mountains of  ComVal its called Bakukang.

A normal beetle would only look like this..

According to websters, Bakukang in Cebu translates to cockroach.

I touched it and it has a hard shell – same as the beetle.
I tried searching for what it really is… maybe its some kind of unusual insect. =p Anyways, the locals say that it doesn’t bite.. but hey.. look at those horns!!!! And its legs has thorns too.

What it does is it sips the water/nectar coming from the coconut trees.
