You were Dying to Know
The NM State Insect. I know you were wondering. It's the Tarantula Hawk Wasp. (Which is on the left in the photo. The thing on the right is the Tarantula, which is an Arachnid, not an Insect, people.)
The THW is pretty much that baddest insect you'd ever want to meet. The chicks are sassy. You can read about them here.
And now you're thinking to yourself, "Self? Do you know what OUR state insect is?" to which your self replies, "Actually, Self, I don't know. Maybe we can look it up?" to which your selves reply to themselves, "I am so thankful for Doods, aren't you? We find all kinds of cool stuff there like a LIST of ALL the state insects!"
If your curiosity kills you and you actually DO look up your state's insect, please let me know.
