My girlfriend found this bug perched outside her house on the rail and we were wondering what kind of bug it was. Grasshopper face and beetle on the back end. Is it dangerous? Thanks in advance

Cottonwood Borer

Dear Angelic,
It is highly unlikely that the distinctive Cottonwood Borer will be confused with any other insect.  It is not dangerous, though it has strong mandibles and it might bite if carelessly handled.
