The only thing I don’t like about #FL – these guys....

The only thing I don’t like about #FL – these guys. Is that an insect or a trilobite? People say they’re harmless but can anything called a toe-biter really be harmless? I am not so sure. I don’t even want to step on these things wearing sneakers. Fortunately this bugger has seen better days. #boyntonbeach

Belostomatidae is a family of freshwater hemipteran insects known as giant water bugs or colloquially as toe-biters, Indian toe-biters, electric-light bugs, alligator ticks, or alligator fleas. They are the largest insects in the order Hemiptera (at Boynton Beach, Florida)
