Does anyone know of or is someone who studies insects? I know that this a kind of a weird post. But my students came in today with an unidentified bug. Her grandfather found it in a grassey field. He has been a farmer for 40 some odd years and he has never seen anything like it. She showed it to some of us country folk, and we have never seen anything like it. It is round, maybe 0.75 inches in diameter, 2-2 .5 inches long, a teal-torqiuose color with black horns on it body. It also has brown antena'* and brown...what looks to be like front legs 4 of them, i think.
The antena'* and legs are black tipped. It stops moving in cooler weather, it becomes active with warmth. It'* very ugly, please someone help. It has become a class project to figure out what the heck Maxwell is. Yes, we have named it, Maxwell, becuase we are keeping it in a Maxwell House coffee container. Anywho, if you
have any ideas please let me know.
