I live in Colorado and saw this thing on my driveway, when my dog was considering it for breakfast. Haven’t seen a bug this huge in 10 years. What the devil is it?

Dear Grossed Out in Colorado,
Your large beetle is one of the Prionids, more specifically, the Ponderous Borer, Trichocnemis spiculatus.
