    6 legs, 2 antennae, and a set of pinchers. Also seems to be covered in some kind of other tiny bug.....

    No clue. Some kind of tick for sure. Definitely wouldn't want it near me.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Yuck, I have no idea, but that is creepy. It looks like some kind of a beetle. Where the heck did you find that creature? And hopefully he doesn't have any friends.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    A tick would have 8 legs. It looks like a variety of stag beetle to me. How big was it?

    That is absolutely disgusting...and bugs don't typically bother me.

    Apparently, according to my bug expert, it's a predatory beetle covered in parasitic mites!!! I tied to google more info but came up empty handed. Thank god I found it outside!! It had 6 legs. Gross!!!

    I thought those were its babies. Of course children especially teenagers can be parasitic mites, lol. The fact it is predatory in its name makes you wonder wth it does with those pinchers!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise
