Strange Insect

@HilaryA, do you know what this outlandish creature is? I asked my brother and he said an ant, so he's hopeless.

Looking at its mouth parts, I'd guess some sort of Reduviidae :)

WOW, @HILARYA, YOU'RE AMAZINGGGG! I searched up Reduviidae, and I found something that looks like the bug in this pic; it's either a wheel bug or something that I'm not allowed to write on this comment because it kept making me go back. It's like "ambusher bug" but a different word for ambusher.
