This Bug was found in the Amboro national park in Bolivia and I need to know what it is. People there called it ’the Fairy’. Length about 12-15 cm.
Thank you

Female Dobsonfly

Dear Kathrin,
This is a female Dobsonfly, and though we are quite certain it is a different species, we do have Dobsonflies in North America.  The male Dobsonfly is a fierce looking though perfectly harmless creature.

Location: Bolivia
