Beetle found under a log - Odontotaenius disjunctus
Fayetteville, Washington County, Arkansas, USA
October 13, 2020
Size: ~2 quarters put together
I stumbled across an old log that seemed to be decaying on the ground. However, it wasn’t decaying so much that it was falling apart so I decided to lift it. Under this log were two large black beetles. They were laying on their backs and began moving their legs in every direction, attempting to flip themselves to be upright. Found at 5:36 pm in dry, wooded area.
