Just wondering what this type of bug is, I have never seen something like this before.
This is an Elephant Weevil, Orthorhinus cylindrirostris, which you may verify on the Oz Animals website which states: “The Elephant Weevil is pest to the wine industry as it feds on grape vines. It is a brown grey weevil with a long slender snout and long forelegs. The body has thick black or brown scales. The antennae are clubbed and form an L shape with a distinct elbow. Males antennae are located much closer to the point of the snout than females. Males also have longer forelegs than females. “
