World's largest flying insect discovered - EIGHT inches wide with pincers and long teeth

The world's largest flying insect has been discovered in China - and it's bigger than a human hand.

The huge aquatic bug has a wingspan of 8.27 inches and has pincers as well as long teeth.

After being discovered in Sichuan Province , it was examined by experts at the Insect Museum of West China where it was found to be an unusually big specimen of the giant dobsonfly.

It measured 21cm, breaking the previous record held by the South American helicopter damselfly which had a wingspan of 19.1cm.
