What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Wondering what kind of Bug this is…
Hi,
Thanks for offering this service! We found this very strange, cool, Beetle type insect which we’ve never seen before. I haven’t been able to identify him via photos on the web. Do you know what he is? He made a hissing or ‘tsss’… ‘tsssh’ sound each time I disturbed him when I was collecting him ( hoping it wasn’t spraying poison or something at me =) ). I’ve included a photo. It’s sitting on a 50 cent coin for scale. Hopefully he’s harmless as I’ve set him free.
Thanks, Leann

Hi Leann,
This is a Ten Lined June Beetle, and it is harmless. Gorgeous image by the way.
