Can you tell me what bug this is? I think it is related to T. infestans, but my dear daughter disagrees, and thinks it more related to some sort of cockroach.
Help us put our disagreement to rest.
Love your blog!

This is a Giant Water Bug in the family Belostomatidae, and it is not related to the Cockroach. Giant Water Bugs are aquatic predators that can also fly. In the U.S. they are commonly called Toe-Biters.
