Your letter to the bugman:  Hello!  Found this huge grub at the transition zone between mangrove bayou and the beach on Sanibel Island, Florida on March 1, 2018.   For reference, it’s in my hand and I’m a 5’4” adult.  Placed it back on the ground under a leaf after snapping this photo.  Thanks for your help!

Eastern Hercules Beetle Grub, we believe

Dear Hannah,
This is the grub of a Scarab Beetle, and considering its size, we believe it is a grub of an Eastern Hercules Beetle.  We suspect it was found near rotting wood.
