I was riding around on my motorcycle , and ended up at a friends house and found this on the ground in front of his garage




My wife being the super sleuth she is googled it and figured out it was a Jerusalem beetle and it was big and creepy . About 2 inches long and it looked pissed . I take only pictures and leave only footprints , so I snapped one and left him to his day . I wonder what he did for the rest of the weekend . . .

probably found a cat to carry away and devour at his leisure.

did you at least flip him back over mike?

Had those allll over growing up in Santa Ana in what used to be the river bed years ago, love sandy soil and eat almost any plant... also known colloquially as potato bugs.

I did try to flip him over , but he flipped right back over onto his back and just glared at me .
