    Good one
    'Scept maybe Someone didn't read the post I made?
    It seems to be a Giant Water Bug, Lethocerus americanus or Toe-Biter

    Re: Any bug experts out there?

    So what you're trying to say is it was a Giant Water Bug?

    But isn't that related to the Giant Cockroach family?

    I do believe Gary mentioned the roaches go to swimming classes to qualify for their water bug classification.

    Most of the training centers are probably in Florida swamps.

    Nope cockroaches are a totally different family... they are scavengers and eat anything.
    These little guys are NASTY! They go after moving prey! They paralyze the prey then ... google if you want to know more gross details of what happens next

    Yup and they are most likely illegal aliens from South of the US border (Only place I know of cockroaches that big!)

    They are not of this world. Thanks to Wikipedia, I still have flashbacks of seeing the giant water bugs carrying thousands of their eggs on their backs

    So cockroaches = big-flat-bug air force
    GIANT water bug = big-flat-bug marines

    Wrong service branch, same sentiment
