What is it!!!!?
I teach at a PreK Center in Houston, Texas. We found this bug on our playground. It was in the mulch that covers the playground. This bug is about 3 1/2 to 4 inches long and about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
This is a Beetle Grub in the superfamily Scarabaeoidea which consists of Scarab, Stag and Bess Beetles. We will see if Eric Eaton knows the species.
