Wow! It's been awhile since I've posted here simply because it's very slow... but

What your looking at is a Hellgrammite... the larval form of the Dobson Fly. It is not "dangerous" though it does have jaws strong enough to pierce human flesh... it won't kill you or make you sick... it will make you say "why the hell was I dumb enough to play with something that has such large pinchers".

This world is filled with natural wonders... your thoughts should be of awe and not fear.
