Can anyone identify this bug?

This was taken in Florida.

No, but if he asks, he can have my lunch money, I'll tell you that!

I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.

I lived in Florida for about 25 years and never seen a bug that looked like that before. Way worse stuff up in the NE here!

If you think that is scary check out the Giant Red Headed centipede. They can grow to 8" and are said to be very poisonous. They are found in much of the South and Southeast.

Didn't see your post until after I posted, and we anon users can't edit posts. Didn't mean to steal your thunder.

You didn't steal my thunder. it was your condescending "Teh Google is your friend" comment that sparked my response. Had you just posted the link I may have even thanked you. If you read threads before responding you may not look like such an ass.
