World's Ugliest Bug! (?) in Extreme Closeup HD V10442

If this isn't the world's ugliest insect, it's certainly one of the top contenders! Seen here in extreme macro/close-up, this Potato Bug (also known as a Jerusalem Cricket, Skull Insect, and a number of other names) generally burrows into and lives underground where it eats mostly decaying organic matter, although it is also known to eat other insects. Sometimes these bugs can be found wandering around at night looking for new places to burrow and feed, and can occasionally be uncovered by turning oer rocks, boards, and other large items which have been laying on the ground for a long time. This particular specimen is nearly 3 inches long and looks like it could inflict a good bite, although it is not poisonous and would probably not attack unless provoked.
