We found this fella a few days ago on our deck at our home in Harford County, MD. Hadn’t seen one like it before- and haven’t been able to ID it!

American Carrion Beetle

Dear Bob and Susan,
As its name implies, this American Carrion Beetle feeds on rotting flesh, though it will also feed on certain smelly fungus.

Thank you SO MUCH Daniel!  Pretty interesting little fella!
