, , , , ,

When most people see a bug, their reaction is a combination of revulsion and aggression. However, not all bugs are gross enough to stomp. It’s true! There are some insects in the world whose cute factor make them surprisingly WAY less creepy than the rest of their unsettling insect amigos.

Check out all these teeny-tiny, fuzzy-wuzzy creatures.

1.) China Silkworm Moth

Used for their silk production as larvae, the grown up moths look so fluffy and cuddly.

2.) Baeus

These teeny tiny wasps sure are cute, and…also parasitic to spider eggs.

3.) Red Milkweed Beetle

The bright colors warn predators of their poisonous nature.

4.) Spicebush Swallowtail Caterpillar

You may think it’s staring at you with those big doe eyes, but that is just its skin coloration!

5.) Jumping Spiders

The bouncy bugs have incredible vision thanks to their big beady eyes.

6.) Bumble Bee

There are 250 different kinds of bumble bee, but they’re all fuzzy little cuties.

7.) Eucalyptus Snout Beetle

These eucalyptus munchers caused havoc when they were accidentally introduced in California. Scientists had to control the population using a parasite. Eek.

8.) Puss Caterpillar

It may be the cutest of them all, but this fuzzy wuzzy packs a poisonous punch. The most poisonous in the United States.

9.) Japanese Emperor Caterpillar

They eventually morph into the less goofy and more regal looking Emperor Butterflies, the national butterfly of Japan.

10.) Cross-Eyed Planthopper

Definitely the derpiest bug in existence.

11.) Panda Ant

Not actually related to ants or pandas at all, this wingless wasp has a stinger so painful it’s said that it could knock out a cow.

12.) Spanish Moth

These moths look more like disco divas with their poofy “hair” style and heart-shaped spots.

13.) Feather-Horned Beetle

Peter Gallagher, is that you??

14.) Monkey Hoppers

Unlike ordinary grasshoppers, these come in all the colors of a bag of Skittles.

15.) Chinese Bush Brown Butterfly Larvae

Also known as the “Hello Kitty” caterpillar, for obvious reasons.

16.) Eucharitid Wasp

These punk-rock parasites feast on baby ants in their larvae state. Hardcore.

17.) Damselfly

Like dragonflies, these dames hang out by the water but don’t have the greatest flying ability.

Kind of makes me want to pull a Honey I Blew Up The Kid scenario and make some of them my pets.

However, because nature can be insane, most of the brightly-colored bugs in the world are actually highly poisonous. If you see one of these cute bugs in the wild, look, but don’t touch!
