New Shop Mascot

Rose Chafer Larvae- Cetonia aurata

The other day as I was wasting the lunch hour away, my brother Steve pointed out a very odd creature slinking its way from under my chair. This critter was inching his way across the shop floor, and making good time to boot.

At present - or until more intelligent minds intervene - we're identifying this critter as a Rose Chafer. Regardless, we'll see how long we can keep it alive and what it eventually turns into.
