Reddish-brown about an inch long. It can wiggle, it was found "under the dirt" by kids.
School yard playing field
It is weird looking ! Unfortunately someone released it so we will never know it was going to turn into
No offense. Sorry!
It looks super weird
We are saving it to find out
You guys are right! I just searched it on Google Images and you're right. I didn't think moth pupae would be found in the ground, but I guess I am too used to butterflies!
Looks like a moth pupa to me..... :) They can often wiggle the abdominal segments quite vigorously.
Probably a beetle pupa.
