With my hand in the shot for size.

So I went over to the restaurant behind the house for food, and my mom was telling me about "the NOPE! on the front porch," which lead me to this guy.

With some googling, I found out it's a dobsonfly, and this one is a male. The mandibles on the male are primarily for mating and much too large for the insect to bite with, but the female has much smaller mandibles and can actually draw blood if it bites you. Apparently there was a female on the front door when they were trying to open, but someone killed it.

Well I went inside and ate and did my googling, determined that the bug was safe to touch and wasn't going to bite my finger off, but when I came back outside to see if I could handle it and get a photo of it in my hand, it was no longer there.
