Hello! I saw this little guy in my lawn this morning. We live on a lake in Tampa, Florida (in case area is relevant). Didn’t move the whole time I observed it. Looks like an earwig wearing a fur coat!

Dear Sarah,
Many creatures, including Flies, Wasps, Lady Beetles and Spiders are attacked by Fungus.  Your Earwig appears to have succumb to a fungus infection.
