What a strange critter Sandy!! I thought Clicker beetle too at first glance!

chickiemama

I agree Patti.
If that thing clicked and popped up, I would have jumped Graci.
Oh, no no no Hanne! I don't touch insects except butterflies.
It would probably scare the turkeys lyndee.
Yeah right Dave, like I'm gonna eat one. LOL
Yep, she's on the ball morris.
It would be a feast if they could get past the shell Beekay.
No thanks Shirley. : )

I was going to say it was a Clicker Beetle, I have never seen one this big, if you put your finger on it's head it will click it body.

Beekay

Jumbo beetle....those turkeys are fed way too much feed Chickie.

Good job, Laura!

GO Laura! They're harmless, Sandy, unless you eat too many of them!

lyndee

You must have a bird of some kind on your farm that will eat this thing! Where's those turkeys????

Elfie

Well done, Sandy, I like beetles very much, did you take it up? Thanks so very much!!

Graciela

You are brave chickie! I wouldn't go close to that!

Wow, it IS interesting -- as long as it stays outside! :) Thanks Sandy!

pumpkinhead

Well, shoot, if you haven't named it, Laura! I thought you made the name up, and I was suitably impressed with your wit. Come to find out, it's a REAL NAME~!

chickiemama

Thank you JiggyBelle an Laura for your research.

laurajane

I think it may be an eastern eyed click beetle, Sandy.

JiggyBelle

It does look like an alien.....and a big one! Wow, Chickie! Great shot!

chickiemama

Yes it does Suzy.

Thank you breezyone. I put it in my favorites. I looked, but there are so many similar beetles, it got too confusing. LOL
