Found this bug outside my work place and we don’t know what it is. Never have anyone of us ever seen this bug before.

Wheel Bug

Dear Angela,
This is a beneficial, predatory Wheel Bug.  They move slowly and they are not aggressive towards humans, however, you want to stay clear of the piercing mouth that is evident in your photo.  Wheel Bugs can deliver a painful bite if carelessly handled.
