One vicious guy

James spotted this strange critter along the edge of the street. It was ugly and very aggressive. I did upload an image to and got this one comment: "It appears to be a beetle larva of some kind. I'll look around a bit, but I'm sure one of the experts will tell you what it is before I get back." He also posted this link to a similar specimen–a ground beetle larvae. Not even a mama could love this guy!

UPDATE–Someone on confirmed: "Yes, a carabid, likely, Calosoma (genus)."
