The Assassin Bug (Acanthaspis Petax) preys on ants. This crazy mofo uses carcasses of its prey to disguise itself from spiders, which is just diabolical and mortifying at the same time. He lives in East Africa near Lake Victoria in countries including Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania, and is about 1 centimeter in length. Anywho, Assassin Bug.

Gimme a holler.
