Any idea what this bug is?

Re: Any idea what this bug is?

I was wondering if it was maybe some type of queen.  Whatever it is, it's nothing like anything I've ever seen, and it wasn't aggressive or anything like that.  

 

I think I'll find a popular insect board and post it on there, as I'm really curious as to what in the heck this thing is.

Like I said, pretty sure it's a mole cricket. They're harmless, except for your yard.

I'm not sure.  I've looked at pictures of mole crickets, and I know that from the picture it's a bit hard to tell, but this thing didn't look like any of the pictures of mole crickets that I saw.  Especially the head.  

 

Like I said, I wish I would have thought to take it out and put it on a white surface so I could have gotten some better pictures of it, including from other angles.  Smiley Sad

Okay, folks.   Got an answer.   It's a Rove Beetle.  There are a slew of different kinds, but looking at many of the pictures I can tell that this thing is definitely one of them.  Smiley Happy

Sure glad I'm not a betting man, would've lost. Sure looked like a mole cricket in the pic. At least we know what the little ugly bugger is now.
