Gosh Clint, that's a horrifying looking creature. How big is it, and how in the world did you find it? Great detail, nevertheless.

Thanks Banksy

Saly - it's about 1/4th inch or less long. When you walk around a sandy area look for small funnels in the sand. It lays at the bottom of the funnel pit covered in sand. You can scoop them out but you have to look close because they are covered in the fine sand.
