Like all insects, they have 6 jointed legs, two antennae, and an exoskeleton made of chitin (a material that also forms our hair and fingernails). Their three-part body consists of a head (with the mouthparts, eyes, and antennae), thorax (where the legs and wings attach), and the abdomen (with the reproductive, and most digestive organs).
There are many species of assassin bugs around the world with different markings.
Classification: Kingdom Animalia (animals), Phylum Arthropoda (arthropods), Class Insecta (insects), Order Hemiptera (true bugs), Suborder Heteroptera, Family Reduviidae.
