  8. Hi Room 2,
    I'm piper from Yaldhurst Model School,
    This insect looks really interesting and sorta creepy.
    now that I know they live in streams and rivers im sorta scared to go swimming later in the summer.
    where or when did you find out about it. I found out that they are native in south canada and the united states, and that they are also called belostomatidae (which is very hard to say for me).
    I liked searching about the toe biter and learning more about this different insect.
    great job!
