Your letter to the bugman: Hi Mr/Ms Bug person .
I was walking to my car and tripped over this Hugh bug. I’m sure it fell off a out of state vehicle, I can only pray.
I’ve never seen a bug in MN like this big.

Dear Curious in Minnesota,
Last we checked, Minnesota is still called The Land of 10,000 Lakes, so there is plenty of habitat for this aquatic, predatory Giant Water Bug or Toe-Biter. We are pretty certain it is a local species for you.
