Rhino Beetle Grub

Fig Beetle Grub, on It’s Back

At least, I think that’s what I just dug up! However, a Fig or June Beetle was in my garden this summer, and could have laid eggs, but I think this grub is too large. Please correct me if I’m wrong. You can see the size measured against my finger near the end of the clip. It is dragging itself on it’s back, as those are it’s short legs sticking up in the air. And it can move fast! I plan to gift this to my neighbor’s chickens.
