Here's a big water scorpion (no relation to actual scorpions). These guys are just about the most sinister-looking creatures you could find, and what's especially creepy is that they can come up out of the water and fly around, as I learned when one left my aquarium and buzzed my head while I was peeking into the microscope at a mayfly nymph.
This water scorpion was collected from unknown on March 10th, 2004 and added to Troutnut.com on January 25th, 2006.
I'd hate to be a trout fry swimming too close to those claws.
The water scorpion landed here after flying out of my aquarium. It's unnerving to have such a large thing flying around one's bedroom...
