Don’t know what it is, but it was running across the driveway this afternoon in the warm March sun.
(JUST IN: One of  our friendly neighborhood U of Arkansas extension entomologists has ID’d this fellow as an antlion. Learn something new every day!)

TRILOBITE-Y -- Armor plates, fuzzy legs and pincers that look like they mean business. This creature looks like a throwback to another eon.
