 What is this? Looks like an alien!!



I found it while creek walking. it was under a rock eating a crayfish. I wasnt the one who picked it up my friends did. I live in the north-eastern part of ohio if it helps. i was told it was a dragonfly larva but its looks different then the ones I saw when I researched. also it was almost as long as my hand and thick as 1 as a half finger. its also hard to see but it had quite large pinchers. thanks

It is probably a nymph of a Ranatra Scorpion.
