My husband was ”tackled” by this bug last night, around midnight, in Brigham City, UT.
Whatever it is, it is HUGE!
Thank you for your help.

We never tire of posting images of Giant Water Bugs with feet for size reference because another common name for this insect is the Toe-Biter, a name that doubtless originated with youngsters getting bitten by this aquatic predator while swimming in ponds and lakes.
