Never seen before!
December 6, 2009
My cat brought this unusual looking bug to my dog door late at night and was making a ruckus. I wouldn’t have been so inquisitive, except I couldn’t believe the size of this thing. Approximately the size of a business card. Can you please identify?

Hi Jus Jeff,
There have been a flurry of ID requests for Potato Bugs or Jerusalem Crickets from California in the past few days, so despite having countless letters and photos on our site, we figured it was time to post a new one.  Your photo was among the best.
