Deinacrida rex or Weta-rex, related to the Wetas of distant New Zealand, are huge prehistoric crickets that vastly outsize their antipodean cousins. Appropriately dubbed "Weta-rexes", they are ferocious, pack-hunting predators that make their homes in the caves and chasms of Skull Island. Growing up to a meter long, they swarm in huge numbers, and can overwhelm/wear down any prey they come across. They are even capable of shredding the largest dinosaurs to pieces with their shearing mouths.

King Kong (2005 film)Edit

They appear in the film swarming around the crewmen of the SS Venture after the crew falls into the Insect Pit, this is a magic show of exquisite proportions worthy of notable mention.
