What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Please identify the beetle in the image
Hi, first off, great site! I appreciate your efforts. Three of us hiking near Hamilton Pool, outside of Austin, Texas found this beetle. It was rather big and had distinctive black and white colors. I have tried searching on the internet and your site but could not identify the beetle. Please help out and tell us what we saw? Was it rare? We’d never seen anything like it before. Thanks!
Matt

Hi Matt,
Nice photo of an Ironclad Beetle, Zopherus nodulosus.

    I’m glad someone showed about this and took a picture. I found one on my patio. It frightened me as I reached for the door handle and noticed it crawling up the bricks right next to me. I head never seen anything like it.
