Observation Notes: This big guy was found near Red Clay Creek in delaware. When we found him he was on the ground and was being attacked my Yellow Jackets. Any other time we may not have interfeared but since we have never seen anything like this big guy we got the Yellow Jackets off of him and relized he was already dead.We brought him home for are son's bug box(We only take dead bugs). We would really like to know what he would have became. Thanks for your time.
