Giant “Bug” Spotted in Southern Minnesota [PHOTOS]
The large "beetle" is just south of Gibbon, MN on the way out of town on Highway 2.
There's a saying that goes "Everything is bigger in Texas." Well some things are actually bigger in the Land of 10,000 Lakes! You've got Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox in Bemidji, the Jolly Green Giant in Blue Earth, Hermann the Giant in New Ulm, Chief Wenonga in Battle Lake, Big Ole in Alexandria, the World's Largest Crow in Belgrade, the World's Largest Ball of Twine in Darwin, the World's Largest Free-Standing Hockey Stick in Eveleth and countless others.
Here's another one you can add to the list of large Minnesota roadside attractions -- did you know there's a giant "bug" in Gibbon, MN?
The "bug" in question is the frame of an old VW Beetle painted black and mounted in the air on poles shaped to look like spider legs. Altogether, it gives the impression of a giant daddy long legs spider.
"I’ve been through Gibbon and never noticed!" exclaimed one in the photo's comment section. According to Reddit user klippDagga and Google Maps, the giant bug is located just south of Gibbon in County Highway 2. It sits in front of a pole barn with the name Hillman across the front.
