YOU WON'T BELIEVE THAT THESE GIANT INSECTS ARE ACTUALLY REAL
Insects can really seem huge, especially when you are afraid of them. Still, some of them are actually much smaller today than their ancestors from prehistoric times. Mainly during the Carboniferous period, which started 360 million years ago and ended 300 million years ago, some particularly large specimens appeared. This is mainly due to the significantly higher oxygen content in the atmosphere and the absence of large insect hunters such as birds back then.
