|This insect is very common all over the world, normally about 70mm in size. The Madagascar version, however, is 10 times as big. (aprox. 7 centimeters). |
Like their smaller cousins, these living fossiles roll themselves up into an impregnable ball when threatened, as you can see in the upper frame.

You're right, they are very common all over the worl. Here in France, we can find them in every dark holes, but nobody cares about them because they are so small and harmless. The one on your picture is far more impressive if it really measures 7cm ! A very interesting shot, I like the small picture where we can see him rolled up.
Well done. Thanks for posting.
