This scary looking was walking over my floor. At first I thought it was an oversized earwig but then I thought it was unlikely.
When I caught it, the bug tried to squirt this black ink at me which was caught by the plastic container. It is a bit over 40mm from feelers to tail.
Do you know what type of bug would get around Adelaide, South Australia, Australia (and would it be dangerous)?

Dear Bug Pro,
You had an encounter with a harmless Mole Cricket. The are found in many parts of the world, and we frequently get identification requests from Australia, the Middle East and many parts of North America.
