    Today, I'm calling the help of the tempers, my father found this insect inside the house and I would like to know what it is?
    We can't really see it on the picture but it has some kind of claw or hook on the tip of its legs.

    I know that entomology isn't the preferred field in the forums, but I'm just curious to see if anyone in the forum has some knowledge on this stuff.

    leaving the jokes apart i know some insects have some kind of parasite mushrooms that divore them outside and inside so maybe this is an example

    How big is the bug?
    And have you found any more like it?
    The shells of some insects that get into pesticide react something like that.

    Is it still alive? Because my mother thinks it is this insect, but completely covered in dust.

    This actually looks likely. Credit goes to Waflix's mom, of course. Can't say what it was covered in though, looked like someone covered it with frosting...

    Did some searching, and it kinda look like a Masked Hunter bug

    Going down to the 2nd pic here would also suggest the same thing

    Unless somebody brings something else, I believe that hobo33 is right on.

    Thank you everybody.

    @m3rox, if I wanted to do a troll thread, I would bring something that would cause discord among Tempers, not a bug identification thread.

    Looks kind of a bug shaped yogurt covered pretzel. You should eat it.

    Probably being lazy.
    Wow...never seen anything like that before.

    How odd.
