    Is that a saw blade on it's head? Trying a bit too hard to be the best bug for metal I'd say.

    If you Google "bug with saw on back" it comes up as the second image result. We truly live in the future!

    The bug the OP posted was luckily one of the FAB (Frequently asked bugs) so I found it fairly quickly. The FAB is on the right hand side of the page. If the bug your looking for is not on the FAB, then you can upload a picture of your bug and have people identify it for you.

    since the 10th grade my wife has sworn that she saw a bright red and blue spider, about the size of a hand in a national geographic magazine. I'm pretty sure it was a comic book ;) But she's been trying to find it ever since with no dice
