Wheel Bug - Laura Gillis

This is a Wheel Bug -- one of several Assassin Bugs and one of my favorites… they are just so pre-historic and wicked looking! I understand that they also have a wicked bite but I have been lucky enough not to know that first hand!

I had to do two views on this one so you can see the wheel on his thorax and the long snout that folds back and fits into a groove on his underside.
