Ground beetles of some kind I think. I used to find body parts all the time when I was a kid. I don't see many live ones but found two yesterday.

They're bess beetles with daddy problems ;)

They are predatory and I've heard they don't take too kindly to being captured.

Gala...nice find :)

Nice one {D I used to give them random things when I was little to see if they'd break it. Of course they'd rip up things when I provoked them too much {D
