This is a weird bug that my kids and I found in Northern Wisconsin at a cabin by the Radisson Flowage. During our 3 night stay over Memorial Day weekend 2012 we found 4 of these critters running around. Please help us know what it is. Thanks

Hi Clint,
This is a Hellgrammite, the larva of a Dobsonfly, and they are generally found close to water.  Hellgrammites are a favored bait for freshwater anglers.  We will be scheduling your letter to post live to our site later in the week as we will be on holiday.

    Looks like the bug Khan used against the Enterprise crew!
