Assassin bug waits for supper
If you look closely under his head, you'll see the long, sharp proboscis folded next to its body. When it finds an insect (or other creature -- big ones have been known to devour small vertebrates) it wants to eat, it stabs the hapless prey with its proboscis, injects a poisonous, painful, and digestive fluid, and then uses it like a straw to suck out the prey's now liquified innards. It is a true bug.
