Giant Leaf-footed Bug

Acanthocephala declivis


Large, intimidating bugs that are mostly harmless although they can spew some pretty noxious odorants. They are true "BUGS" because they possess piercing-sucking mouthparts that they insert into plant tissues, especially developing fruits, to extract liquified food.
