Big Brown Bug

If anyone out there knows an entomologist I have a bug for them. 

I was just outside taking some late afternoon photos of my garden when I found this bug hanging on a leaf of Culver's Root. Just sitting there. I gave it a couple of pokes but it wasn't interested and moved not one iota. Perhaps it is asleep and wakes for the night to roam around. 

The big brown bug is about 1 1/2 inches long maybe even two uncurled and about half as wide. Dull and flat colour as you can see. The body looks a bit like an armadillo or a tank with pincers. (No, that's just my imagination)
If anyone recognizes this bug let me know, I'd like to know what it is.

UPDATE: Now Identified ! Follow this link to the November post.
