The Horrid King Assassin Bug, also called the Giant Spiny Assassin Bug, is native to tropical West Africa. The largest of the Assassins, adults are 30-45mm long (nearly 2 inches). Like other Assassin Bugs, it eats other insects rather than plant juices. It has piercing mouthparts that inject venom before sucking its victim dry. It can also pierce human skin or spray venom into the air.
Horrid King Assassin Bug nymphs Don't know what happened to these nymphs that have keeled over dead. Is the adult bug cannibalistic?
