Not sure what’s cuter...these baby Assassin bugs or baby spiders. If you look closely in the video, you can see the egg cluster they hatched from. These were found on a work mates caravan awning and she mistakingly thought they were baby spiders, which is probably part of their camouflage. #entomology #insect #insects #bugs #australianinsects #assasinbug #reduviidae #biology #zoology #nature #naturelovers #naturelover #love

Fierce little predator! Wheel Bug (Arilus cristatus) nymph feeding on a fruit fly. I have 18 of these babes to feed and it is too much fun watching them catch their prey! Swipe to see a pic of momma to see how badass these guys look as adults. Females can be up to 1.5 in (38 mm)! #ariluscristatus #wheelbug #assassinbug #reduviidae #hemiptera #truebug #entomology

A nymph of the assassin bug genus Reduvius collected in the Mojave Desert near Joshua Tree by L. F. Henderson. These nymphs cover themselves with dust & debris as camouflage & are referred to as Masked Hunters. The plan is to rear it to adulthood and determine what Reduvius species it is. #assassinbug #insectsofinstagram #reduviidae #reduviidaenymph #macrophotography #iphone6 #academyofnaturalsciences #naturalhistorymuseum #naturalhistory #nymphs #entomology #mojavedesert #joshuatree #igers_philly

The much maligned assassin bug climbing the stairs on hump day. It’s fascinating to watch them walk, like tiny dinosaurs. #humpday #amateurentomologist #assassinbug #reduviidae #tinydinosaur #indoorhabitat

Brontostoma colossus assassin bug, I found and photographed on 2016 into the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. It’s a millipede predator and it’s one of the nicest Reduviidae I ever met. Thanks to my friend Gil Wizen for the species id! #predatoridelmicrocosmo #insect #igersperu #assassinbug #reduviidae #amazon #losamigosbiologicalstation #acca #1frame4nature #macro #photography #aposematic #predator

Such a delightful surprise tonight! The Wheel Bug (Arilus cristatus) eggs that the big female laid a few months ago are hatching! I was not expecting any success and 22 nymphs have emerged so far! #wheelbug #assassinbug #entomology #hemiptera #reduviidae #ariluscristatus

I found another Assassin Bug! You'll remember the last one I posted, I had found in the Ozarks. This one was in the mountains of the Philippines!

Look at the beautiful metallic shimmer on the head and thorax! The metallic and bright red coloration are aposematism - signals to predators that this species can hurt them. 🎨
🛑
Many assassin bugs are capable of inflicting painful bites. I think this individual is from the genus Haematoloecha (please chime in if you think otherwise), which means it could be a millipede predator.

These assassin bugs may store poisons from the millipedes they eat in their body, so that they are also unpalatable to predators.

Assasin Bug Nymph vs Harvestman.
.
Assasin bug wins!
.
As their name suggests Assasin bugs (family: Reduviidae, Order Hemiptera) are verocious hunters in both nymph and adult stage.
Harvestmen (Order: Opiliones) are 8-legged arachnids with one fused body, rather than a spider's segmented body. They are often called Daddy Long legs, along with the Crane Fly.

Assassin bugs are ambush predators. This one has impaled a leafhopper on its proboscis. They inject digestive enzymes into their prey through the proboscis, before drinking the prey's liquified contents back through the proboscis, as through a drinking straw #extraoraldigestion #assassinbug #reduviidae #leafhopper #cicadellidae #hemiptera #bug #insect #arthropod #braesidewalk #blackheathnsw #bluemountainsnationalpark #bluemountains
