CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Ox Beetle Grub (probably Strategus sp.)
I suspect my English setter girl dug up this large, beefy larva and now ants are attacking it.
“…they serve a vital role of recycling organic matter.” Another reason to avoid using chemical grub control.
One of the Scarabs; Rhinoceros Beetles (Dynastinae) is the subfamily. https://bugguide.net/node/view/6277
Some people raise these. “Adults will eat apple slices and many other types of fruit. Grubs eat rotten wood and composted vegetation.” (source: https://web.archive.org/web/20100920225147/http://www.beetle-experience.com/care-aloeusl.htm
