I found this guy in my cat’s bowl.
What is it? I neglected to mention it is almost 2″ long.

Thanks so much,
I stopped killing spiders years ago because of you.
This magnificent beetle is an Eyed Elater, Alaus oculatus, the largest North American Click Beetle.
Wow, thanks, that was fast.
My friend found one in her yard a few days ago. And we both wanted to know. We especially wanted to know it it bites, felt pretty safe after seeing the picture of Jay holding one.
you always come through.
