Your letter to the bugman:  Looks super cool and walks kinda like a praying mantis caught the pic while it was eating lunch. Making sure it’s not dangerous as it is by a playground
How you want your letter signed:  Rosh

Wheel Bug Nymph

Dear Rosh,
This is a Wheel Bug nymph, and like many Assassin Bugs, it might bite if carelessly handled, but unlike some Assassin Bugs, namely the Kissing Bugs, the bite of a Wheel Bug, though painful, is not considered dangerous.
