That looks like a South American Camel Toe:

Very Dangerous - Don't even touch it. Its Toxin causes:

Servere Cramps
Muscle Contractions
Premature Ejaculation
Nicotine Fits

The only antidote is massive amouts of beer to thin out the venom in your blood!!!

In rare occasions victims have hallucinated and and seen John Kerry make it with Diane Feinstien.

This sensory overload is very dangerous to a normal human central nervous system.

At the Demo Undergroud this bug is the drug of choice.

I remember those bugs as a lad living in Fla. I always thought they looked like tiny little baby Gila Monsters...

I took entomology in 1978. Let's see if I remember any of it correctly.

My first guess is that it is the intermediate state or instar of something. In other words, it isn't a mature insect. I base that on the pubescence (hair) easily seen. If it is an instar, then it isn't an ant, but may morph into a a member of the roach family.

It may also be a flightless male of some species. In that case it might be a member of the group containing wasps and bees.

Not knowing how long that thing is, it reminds me of a member of the ant family commonly called a Cattle Killer in Texas.

Really hard to tell.
