Oh well, the concept of huge bugs is still good for low budget monster movies!

Naw...he was right..look at the kinds of legs the great reptiles needed to support their huge bodies..an ant (or any insect with spindly legs) that grew much larger than as per design simply wouldn't be able to support its weight...it's just a matter of physics and engineering, and it's why insects aren't any larger than they are...they'd either have to have MANY more skinny legs, or much more massive legs..

I have to say off hand I think your teacher was wrong. The proportions would stay the same if the ants grew huge. Now you have to hope that no mad scientist flubs up and we end up with some monster bugs!!

That mantis is a result of some genetic experiments at Area 51 that went horribly wrong. I think there was some radiation involved too!

The giant ant movie. Did it happen on an island and regular ants walked across some toxic stuff that had washed up on the beach when it's drum leaked? Then they became real big and terrorized the people on the island?

When I was a little kid there was a movie called 'Them' about giant ants ..scared the bejezus out of us young'uns...but one of our teachers explained that such critters couldn't exist because if an ant's body grew as big as a bus ( like the ants in the movie) it's spindly little legs couldn't support it, and that there's a reason elephants' legs look the way they do...so ever since then I've never worried about giant insects...now Godzilla, of course, is another matter..he's got big thick legs..

Kevin, are you sure this is photoshopped? I don't know how I managed to miss this when you posted it, but this really is frightning! and here I was worrying about earthquakes and flooding, great pic!
