I found a young Wheel Bug once and wished I had kept it for a pet as they get rather large and I read they have a nasty bite. Are you all raising this nymph?

You can find Wheel Bugs in abundance down at my parents place. I never was bitten, but I never did provoke one. "Are you all raising this nymph?" No, I lost him when I was trying to photograph him with a ruler for size comparison.
