Wow! You should have saddled that thing up and ridden him around the yard! I'd rather deal with ants and snails than that thing.

That looks exactly like them bugs we call a "child of the earth." Either that or a Jerusalem Cricket.

Oops, looks like they are all the same thing.

The thing about those critters is that they're huge, they're butt ugly, but they're harmless. They still scare the hell outta me though whenever I see one just because they look so damn huge, butt ugly and scary!

Hey Okie, I found his brother when I was riding out in West TX a few weeks back... :eek: He wandered into our campsite and we let him go about his business. These things are so big that you can actually see their tracks in the sand. :eek:
