Home Invasion, Well, Sort of…

This little bugger invaded my Condo last week.  Evil looking little sucker.  Those claws look like they could be used to filet an elephant!

Anyone have any idea what it is?

Damn thing flies, too.  Startled the hell out of me.  It was all I could do to not scream like a school girl when it took flight and headed for my head.  lol  Don’t get me wrong.  I got out of it’s way.  Those claws are scary.  Used a pair of tongs to pick it up and throw it off the balcony.  Felt like it weighed a good 10 or 12 ounces.  That shell protecting it’s wings and body was hard as rock.

Those claws and pinchers.  I had no desire to test their tensil strength.

Grabbed it.  Ran for the balcony and tossed it as far as I could.

No idea how it got up that high.  We’re on the 15th floor.  Must have been a good gust of wind that pushed it up to us.

Damn thing gave me the heeby jeebies.  haha
