story of this bug...found in my backyard...big..2 inches in body, 2 more in "feelers"...picked it up and it hissed at me...that was nice, not too many bugs hiss (my kids had madagasgar hissing roaches, so i've been hissed at before)...it crawled up my hand and to the end of my finger where it tried to bite my fingernail...this made me a bit wary as those mandibles are quite large...so it moved over and was about to bite into the side of my finger when i flicked it off...felt bad as i think i hurt it...took some photos and then let it loose in the backyard...looked it up on-line and found out it is a cottonwood borer beetle...might not have let it go since it hurts local trees...still have a dislike to kill anything (except wasps--wife is allergic--and ants that get in the house...)
