The most unattractive insect I have ever seen! (Warning: Hard on the Eyes!)
8

I imaged this really unattractive insect yesterday. I have no idea whether it is a beetle, and perhaps specifically a weevil? Does anyone know? It looks almost prehistoric at this close range. It was also one of the clumsiest creatures I have ever seen, turning upside down on a regular basis and flailing about. I actually felt sorry for it and righted it a couple of time. It seems to have claws, which would probably pinch nicely.

One has to have admiration for the wonderful bio-diversity on this earth.
