Mosquito with Dinosaur DNA?????

Mosquito with Dinosaur DNA?????

I killed this sucker yesterday, he was on my windshield staring me down.

I couldn't take it any more and decided to attack before he did.

He was at least 2 inches long.

I have never seen a mosquito that big in all my life, and I live in the land of mosquitoes..central Florida on the edge of a swamp.



Has anyone on here ever seen something like this before?

Around here I'd say that's the fighter escort for the big "Bomber Mosquitoes".

Sorry for your loss ExGeeEye. you should have kept Skeetie on his chain.  There was no collar present when he confronted me.

JohnnyReb, I have no doubt he would be the leader of the pack.

Actually, I think that's a dragon fly.

It doesn't look like any dragon fly I have ever seen.

You could be right.

Only thing is it had the snout of a mosquito.

OK I have been searching this monster out and I think I might have found it....



Gallinippers: 'Giant' mosquito invasion? Nope, just another Florida critter

Quote
But insect experts say they're flabbergasted at how a seldom-seen mosquito that's always been here is drawing so much buzz. Gallinippers are thought to make up less than 2 percent of the mosquito population and they don't spread any of the dreaded mosquito-borne illnesses such as West Nile virus. Many who work in the mosquito-control trenches feel its bite is actually milder than its smaller, more pestiferous peers - certainly no match for the dreaded salt marsh mosquito.
