In New Horizons[edit]

"How to put this gently? Ah yes... BEWARE the giant water bug! I tell you, this vicious predator has been known to attack fish, frogs, and even snakes! SNAKES! Truth be told, no one is safe! Its nickname is 'the toe-biter,' for goodness sakes! Now, one final fact before I faint... The gruesome bug uses its inject its prey...with digestive juices. Hoo... Must stop thinking about...the unthinkable."
