We saw this frightening thing while vacationing in Ixtapa, Mexico. It was aggressive and about 5-6 inches long and found near the beach. Is it a toe biter? We have video if it would help!

Hi Shawn and Steffy,
This is most certainly a Giant Water Bug. We would love to know if there is a colorful Spanish name for the Toe Biter.
When we asked a local what it was, he said something along the lines of “cincero” or “cincera”, but we weren’t able to find a translation for it!
