    found this guy in the bottom of one of my buckets this afternoon while i was working on finishing tearing down my old 75... didnt know exactly what it was, and thought i'd ask...

    about an inch long... its a good vibrant red with a dark brown or black section that i'm guessing is its guts or something..
