Ambush Bugs, my favorite insect, are truly brutal killers. They always hide inside of the blooms of flowers, waiting for some prey to land and feed. They run out and grab the prey quickly and it's all over. They are a type of assassin bug and pierce the prey with their long, sharp proboscis, a syringe like projection that folds under it's head when not in use. They then liquify their prey from the inside out, drinking the fluid. As you can imagine, a bite (or stab) from one of these will be very painful. I would rather take a bite from a wolf spider or jumping spider than from one of these guys.
If you don't think that this is one mean looking face then you must know some VERY mean people.
How can you not LOVE an insect that feeds on mosquitos
Then again, this brutal killer will even revert to cannibalism if it gets hungry enough
This one is waiting.....hungry
This shows you the full body of one of these guys. They look like they are covered in armor.
