Huge Beetle!!!



We were in our family room the other night and heard something hit the slider door. During the day sometimes a bird will hit a window and this was how it sounded, only it was night. Did a bat hit the glass?

This big guy was laying upside down on the patio so I flipped him over and put a quarter by him to show his size. We figured he was about 3 inches long.

We never have figured out what type of beetle he is. Just a Big Ass bug!

He looks to be a California Prionus. But big ass bug will do!

Im not sure but bugs similar to those here are called Hair Eaters. If they get caught in your hair look out they are almost impossible to get out.

LOL I had a giant ichneumon fly into my house and I thought there was some alien bug flying around my pool table! I got the wasp spray (that's kinda what they are) and killed it, It wrapped completely around a full sized pool ball! The "stinger" was over 5 inches long! We found out later it wasn't harmful, they don't sting at all and then I felt bad I killed it!

I don't know for sure, but I've been told that they are called stag beetles. I think I agree with your description, though!

He'd look great on a CQ!

I love the piecing you've done so far on your 2012 quilt.
