I came across this huge insect in our local grocery store’s parking lot late at night (11:30pm EST) in Deerfield, NY. It had a mission as it wobbled right along. What is it? Scared the heck out of me! Such a strange looking thing. My pic is the second attachment but my friend took a pic (first attachment) of what I believe to be the same bug I encountered and she lives not too far from where I saw mine. Hope to hear from you soon as I’m very curious!

Dear Erica,
This is a predatory Giant Water Bug, commonly called a Toe-Biter.
