Uggh! Giant Bug Was Flown To America In A Passenger Bag


A giant African insect found inside a suitcase at Atlanta airport this week according to FOX 5 News. Officials discovered an African millipede inside a traveller’s suitcase on Tuesday morning.

The passengers who owned the bag had no idea the giant bug was in their suitcase and the 6-inch bug was “housed” at the airport. Perhaps it was too large to flush down the toilet? Or perhaps, considering it’s size, it could be rehoused in a zoo.

If you do find something like this in your luggage, be aware that insects like this can sometimes be strong and aggressive, just take a look at this stomach-churning video of a huge centipede fighting a snake.

Millipedes, on the other hand, do not pose any danger to humans, but when they feel threatened they can release a foul-smelling fluid that can cause skin irritation and should be washed off immediately.
