Do you guys like my new hair barrette? In case you dont know, this little beauty is the Giant Waterbug (Lethocerus insulanus). Also known as the Fish-killer bug, or the real owner of the well-known title of Australian Toe Biter. (Some people mistakingly call the Mole Cricket the Toe Biter.) These guys eat tadpoles, aquatic insects and small fish. And although these guys hunt in water, they can also walk and fly! How else do they get into unsuspecting people's hair?? 😉 Kidding. But they can deliver a "painful injection of digestive saliva from their piercing rostrum." (Queensland Mueseum)

Be glad you aren't being stared down by a colossal water bug, rumored to be anywhere between 10 and 20 feet long, and only its relatively tiny cousin, a giant water bug. #actuallyabug #belostomatidae #giantwaterbug #entomology #insectcollection

How can you say no to an insect with eyelashes??? #Adorable #GiantWaterBug #Belostomatidae

I found a giant water bug today! 4" long palm for scale 🖐️🐛 Apparently when they're not employing aggressive predation tactics, or (in this case) clinging to crunchy leaves for dear life, they like to play dead and emit fluid from their anus, yay!🕺🕺 #toebiter #giantwaterbug #workperks #analfluids

Jackson and the giant water bug.
Did you know that these guys grow a little tail (you can kind of see it sticking out in this picture), with which to use as an snorkel while they try to capture their meal of other aquatic creatures like tadpoles??? Crazy!! #giantwaterbug #sobig #socool #sogross #bravekid #insectlover

先日の仕事終わりに職場の方たちに#タガメ を採りに栃木県某所へ連れて行って貰いました。
10年以上ぶりに見たタガメは迫力がありとてもカッコよかったです。写真2枚目は#クロゲンゴロウ です、かわいいですね。
他にもカエルやドジョウ、ウグイの仲間が観察できました。

277/365: Giant Water Bug

I studied this group of insects in grad school and I love them! However, I now live in the south, where people say "water bug" as a polite way of talking about cockroaches. When I mention I worked on giant water bugs in this part of the country, I always have to explain that I am talking about true bugs in the family Belostomatidae, NOT giant cockroaches. These guys are way cooler than roaches! (I may be a little biased...) Check out the way this one's eating a dragonfly that's almost the same size as him/her! Their ability to take down large prey never ceases to amaze me.
