I have no idea what this is. I live in northern mn, I’m originally from Texas, in saying this all the locals have never seen it either. My friend found it crawling across the parking lot of our church.

Dear doesn’t matter,
This is an aquatic Water Tiger, the predatory larva of a Predaceous Diving Beetle, and we cannot fathom why it was in your church parking lot. Perhaps one of Minnesota’s 1000 lakes is adjacent to the parking lot. Perhaps someone captured it in a nearby lake and left it in the parking lot.
