Hey! I’m a wildlife student and I’ve been searching for a species from the order Coleoptera to write a report on. I’ve stumbled upon this guy; rather he stumbled upon me while attempting to hide under my bare foot (jeesh!). I’m new to beetles and haven’t the experience in identifying them. Hoping you can help 🙂

European Ground Beetle

Hi Cole,
This is most certainly a Ground Beetle.  Furthermore, we believe it is an introduced species, the European Ground Beetle,
Carabus nemoralis.  We matched your beetle to a photo on BugGuide.

    Is that a fellow Newfie I see?
    These are one of my favourite beetles. I intend to try and breed them this summer!
