Bug ID

Can anyone tell me what this bug is? It has 6 legs and appears to have bright red fangs hanging down from it’s face. We looked in our bug book and didn’t find any answers. If you know tell me!

    tabitha, I didn’t know either, but was very curious and looked it up on here: http://www.insectidentification.org/
    and it looks like a wheel bug

    I googled wheel bug life cycle and found this. If you scroll down to where it says Life Cycle, you will see a pic of a wheel bug nymph that looks a lot like what you have
