Palo Verde Root Borer

Nothing like a giant beetle to scare the b'jeebers out of you. These guys are clumsy fliers and seem to come out at night. Like the name suggests, they bore into the roots of the palo verde tree as larva and come out in the summer to mate and lay eggs - you guessed it - at the base of a palo verde tree. Don't know how this guy (or gal) got into the men's room sink; maybe looking for a little drink.
