Earth Boring Scarab Beetle

Small rounded, bobbing head beetle
September 9, 2009
My dad found this bug in our garage and showed it to me because he knows i don’t condone the killing of bugs, i took a few pics and relocated it. he (or she) never flew, but looked like a beetle that was a quarter inch long and high. it bobbed it’s head down and up quite a bit.
Thanks, joe s.
