Hello Bugman,
I took the photo of this bug during my vacation.
I put my foot beside to the bug for estimating the size of it. (My shoe size is 9)
Can you please identify this one for me?
Best regards

Dear Basar Turkay,
This is a Giant Water Bug in the family Belostomatidae, a group with a nearly worldwide distribution.   They are aquatic predators and they are capable of biting if accidentally encountered or carelessly handled.  In North America, they are sometimes called Toe-Biters.
