A black, flying bug with a hard outer shell.
I'd say either a rhino beetle, like martinl said, or an an ox beetle of the genus Strategus (http://bugguide.net/node/view/671405/bgi...), which is closely related.
This scarab beetle is related to the dung beetle.I suspect it is Xyloryctes thestalus, a rhino beetle. Yours is a bit rounder so my ID is tentative. http://bugguide.net/node/view/333944#519...
Anyone have an idea what this is?
