Toe-Biter

Dear Natalia,
This is a predatory Giant Water Bug, commonly called a Toe-Biter in North America.  Though it is not considered dangerous, the common name Toe-Biter is a reference to the number of waders who have accidentally stepped on a Giant Water Bug in the shallows and the painful bite that resulted.

Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina
