What an amazing discovery!  It has teeth too :-)

Even If it looks like a duck, it ain’t no duck

This is a 6 spotted tiger beetle(Cicindela sexguttata) that I found squished on the trail.  The second one I’ve found dead and the second time I have ever seen one.  Their eyes are HUGE!  according to Science they are the fastest land animal- proportionate to their size. A true Maserati of the Animal Kingdom.  Because they are so fast, they have to suddenly stop to refocus their eyes.  And it’s probably when they stop that they are most vulnerable to joggers running on the trails.  They love to hunt on sandy trails which is also prime jogger habitat.  So if you like jogging in the parks around your town,  look down and watch out for these incredible beetles.  And don’t squish them.  Oh and take off those stoopid earphones, listen to nature you freaks!
