I found this tiny insect in my office the other day. I know it’s an insect becasue it only has 3 pairs of legs. It walked pretty fast for those tiny legs and it seemed to have either thick antennae or pincer-like mouth. also it’s movement was similar to that of scorpions (without a stinger) and it was even able to lift its tail a little.

This Aphid Wolf or Aphid Lion is the larva of a Lacewing. Both Aphid Wolves and adult Lacewings are gregarious predators that consume small plant feeding insects, like Aphids, in prodigious quantities.
