Ball’s Pyramid and World’s Rarest Insect

In a new video series called 100 Wonders, our well-traveled friend Dylan of Atlas Obscura tells us about some of his favorite places. This episode is about Ball’s Pyramid, the home of the world’s rarest insect, Dryococelus australis.

Dylan tells us the insect’s story and the efforts to bring it back from what was thought to be extinction. Even creepy-crawlies can be the hero of a story once in a while!
