Inle Posted August 9, 2012 Report Share Posted August 9, 2012 My 3-year-old found these guys under the peeling bark of a post oak tree in Austin, Texas. One is dead, one is very much alive. I think they are Hardwood Stump Boar Beetles. They are about 2 inches long, brown and have big painful looking jaws on their somewhat scary looking faces. We also found some hatched eggs on the back of some of the peeled bark. I wish I had a better camera, but this is the best I can do for now. I'm having trouble uploading photos so here is my flicker stream where they are posted. Hardwood Stump Boar(?) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
