My friend found this bug outside of a Target parking lot and we can not find out what it was. It seems like a rather big and unusual bug. I have never seen anything like it before. Can you please help me figure out what it is?

Hello,
I am not sure why, but I just received my email back with no answer or any other type of information submitted or requested.

Hi Nate,
Sometimes when we have numerous emails we are trying to respond to, we just send a brief identification.  You missed our response which was “Toe-Biter”.  A Toe-Biter is also called a Giant Water Bug or Electric Light Bug.  It is an aquatic insect that is also capable of flying.  A closely related and even larger species is considered a culinary delicacy in Thailand.
