I saw this bug outside a gas station and decided to take a picture of it. I’ve never seen anything like it. Its about five or six inches long and about a half inch wide. It didn’t move or make any noise. If you can figure out what it is please let me know. I took the picture Monday April 30 2012 early afternoon.

Male Dobsonfly

Hi Charles,
Now that spring has arrived, we expect to be receiving many photos of Dobsonflies from the curious public.  Despite his fierce looking mandibles, this male Dobsonfly is quite harmless.  The female Dobsonflies are the biters, but since they lack venom, the most damage they will do to a human is a mild pinch.
