Ever seen one of these?
Six legs, but no elbowed antennae. Haven’t been able to find it on the internet.

Hi Doug,
Once we tell you this is a type of Velvet Ant commonly called a Cowkiller, you should be able to find thousands of images online. We have an entire page devoted to Velvet Ants since we have gotten so many identification requests. When you don’t know a name, the best way to use a search engine like Google is with a short description. As a test, we tried “ant red and black furry” and “ant red and black fuzzy” and both immediately led us to our own What’s That Bug? Velvet Ant page as well as numerous other correct internet sites. We are baffled as to why you came up blank.
