* hercules, hercules, oh my little hercules *
You guessed it. This is a Hercules beetle. But what you probably didn’t know is that it’s a female. The ladies don’t have horns. They’re more dignified than that. My boss came into work today and let Shop Cat outside as is the routine every morning and a little while later he walked back out to his truck. Here comes Shop Cat barreling across the lot with eyes wide and something black stuck to the side of his face. Oh how I wish I was there early enough to take a picture! It was this creature that had adhered itself to the cat. Pretty harmless but definitely can latch on pretty tightly to whatever even a random machine belt which made a nice little track for her to travel around.
