What in the heck IS this thing??!!
Hey folks!
Found 7/21/06 crawling on our sidewalk in Indianapolis, Indiana. We’re betting that you know what this thing is. This time we’ve included the picture as an attachment. For some reason, you are unable to get the picture included in an email. We sincerely hope that you will not have opened this email without being able to access a picture. Thanks again!

Now we have your photo. It is a Reddish Brown Stag Beetle, Lucanus capreolus, a male. Females have much smaller mandibles.
