Hi I found this on my deck while brushing my cat( not sure if it was on my cat but he has a large sore on his tale. This pic is the underside of the bug. It looks like part of the bug may have been eaten.

Scarab Beetle Head

Dear Curious,
This is the decapitated head of a Scarab Beetle.  We sometimes receive images of just the heads of large beetles.  The nutritious part of the beetle is the fatty abdomen, so a predator probably ate the fat beetle and left the head.
