Bug - Anisoscelis Affinis, aka Affinis Leaf-footed Bug, Red Big-footed Bug


Check out what we had along the side of our pool this morning!

It apparently is a youngun, as it has not yet developed wings.  Therefore there must be some breeders nearby.  It's main food source is Passiflora, Passionfruit vine.  And since I don't have a Passiflora, well.....

anyway, it is seriously cool looking!




In the USofA this bug is only found in Cameron County Texas, but is widely found in Mexico, also in Nicaragua, Honduras, and Guatemala.
