Subject: Possible alien life!
Geographic location of the bug: Northern California
Time: 01:45 PM EDT
Your letter to the bugman: What is this guy?! He looks like a cicada had a baby with a crab and possibly has a flea as an uncle. He’s very friendly and quite pretty underneath, with a dark green colour around his underside and claws/pinchers.
How you want your letter signed: Rayne
You are very perceptive to have recognized the similarities between an adult Cicada and this immature nymph. Cicada nymphs live underground where they feed by sucking fluids from the roots of plants and their front legs are powerful digging appendages.
