Assassin bug.
This is an assassin bug in the family Reduviidae. I'd have to consult a reference (I'm at work, not at home) to tell you the genus, let alone a species. Just don't try to handle one of these, as the bite of assassin bugs is pretty severe. Please place these images on the family guide page. Thank you.
