Big Bug
Please help us figure out what in the world this is. We saw one first at Yuba lake, In central Utah. It is a very sandy lake. We ran across this picture and were so excited to show everyone we weren’t crazy. This bug is at least 5 inches long and very heavy. We can’t wait to hear from you.

Dear Ellie and Becky,
This is a Potato Bug or Jerusalem Cricket. Usually they are between 2 and 3 inches. Your specimen must be on steroids.
