Big Grub

Posted by Picasa

Last fall I dug up this guy in my yard. It was as large as my index finger. I wondered what it would become, and I put it in this bucket along with some soil so I could keep an eye on it. And of course I forgot it. The other day I rediscovered the bucket but the creature was just a brown shrunken thing. Either it froze in all our cold weather or it dessicated. If it had been in the ground, it would have burrowed deeper and escaped both.
