Saw this interesting looking bug on my sidewalk today. I can say I have never seen a bug with these type of markings. I am pretty sure the 2 black circles are not the eyes, but just part of the bugs markings. It was about 2 inches long. Anyone know what this is?
FYI, I did not kill it.

Click Beetle.

Flip it on its back and you'll find out the reason for its name!

Ahhhh thanks! I've seen the smaller click beetles that are all brown (and held them while they click), but never one this size. This thing was the size of a large cockroach.
