Someone even saw the bug’s similarity with a popular cartoon character, childhood superhero Ben 10’s alien avatar Stinkfly.
The picture soon reached Reddit, where a user said somebody was playing Jumanji again somewhere that led to the animal’s breakout.
Another wrote that there might be chances of the picture being manipulated or fake.
In another chain on Reddit, some users came out saying that the mosquito-lookalike was actually a Robber or Assassin fly.
Some other users said that it was in reality a type of crane fly.
