Immature Masked Hunter

This is an immature Masked Hunter, a species frequently found indoors in the northern sections of North America.  The Masked Hunter is a predatory Assassin Bug that is capable of biting a human if it is carelessly handled.  Immature Masked Hunters have a sticky exoskeleton that allows dust and debris to stick to the insect, effectively camouflaging it in its environment.
