Also known as a Watermelon beetle. It was about 1 inch long, and it hissed a lot when I picked it up (in a cup). I thought it might be spraying something, but I think it was just a hiss...I didn't smell anything or see any cloud of mist. I brought it in my room and set it on a black book for my background.
It was in the hallway of my apartment. (inside)
