    I've never seen anything like this. I live in a one bedroom apartment, found this on the tiles outside of my bedroom. Looks like it has a snout in front, hope it doesn't sting or bite or anything of that sort.

    At least it's not a bed bug.....it kind of looks like that one bug from the lion king. No clue what it is though, never saw anything like it either. I'd be interested to see what one of the experts on here say

    Perhaps it's one of these?

    Definitely not a bed bug. Wait for an expert!

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    A curculiond beetle, commonly known as weevil. Looks like a stored product pest species. I think it's a species of Sitophilus and maybe a rice weevil.
