Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! (Okay, not really. :D)
This bug was found in a backyard, however I have no idea what kind of bug it is or what it's called. The last picture is a picture of the shell it came out of. I tried a search for it on the internet, but I didn't get much seeing I can't really describe it so it would come up to a page with it. It's quite the wondering me, does anyone know what this cooltastic bug is? It's pretty dang big and noisy. :D

In the first picture it looks pretty cute; more like a rubber toy than an actual bug.
I know. :D It looks so cool in that one, it's my favourite one. :D
where exactly in the backyard did you find it?... nice work with the camera, the first 2 look like they could be in some book...
It wasn't in our backyard, it's from a friend's. That'd rule if we had cool bugs like that in our backyard. :D
Somewhat on-topic: I was watching an Animal Planet show earlier featuring this guy who was setting out to be stung by a Bullet Ant. Apparently, that's his whole schtick-- finding exotic insects and trying to get stung/bitten.
Anyway, the Bullet Ant is notorious for having the most painful sting of any insect. He found one at the top of a tree, got stung, and by the time he reached the ground his arm had a 2-inch wide purple welt on it. He did updates every 4 hours saying how much it hurt. It wasn't until 24 hours later that he claimed the pain had gone down to a "dull, tingling ache".
Just thought I'd share all that.
