    I was outside searching for my Cockatiel that my son accidently let out :( and when I was coming back in the house, this huge bug flew in the house with me. I am telling you, this thing is ENORMOUS! It is probably the size of my thumb and took me 10 minutes just to knock him out and then I sprayed him with wasp spray to kill him LOL. Anyone know what the heck it is? Maybe he swallowed my bird? lol

    Ugh! Not sure but it looks like a horsefly. If it is, it's a good thing it didn't bite you- they have a really nasty bite. :confused:

    Definately not a Horsefly. It is about 3 times bigger than a horsefly and horse flys are big! LOL

    It's an elephant in drag, lucky it didn't step on you.
