[4E] Feyboerian Trilobite Revealed!

I recently posted a youtube video the showed off a weird bug from Laos (coleoptera lycidae), also known as a Trilobite. The strange creature is actually a larvae of a type of 'fire fly' and more information can be found here. These bugs are found all over the world, and include a completely black version as well (video of that bug here).

If you like the bug, but think it should be bigger than a green bean, here's the house-sized version: a new monster for 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons.
