Where to start...I have 1 Arizona Blonde Tarantula ( 5 year old baby) 1 bearded dragon, 1 Gaint Vinigarone, 1 Tailess Whip Scorpion.

oh ok ... I talked to some one at the U of A here in AZ and they have never seen anything like it. The carpinter bees we have here are black and shiny. The bee right now is over at the U of A. so I guess we will reall know what it is.
But I think you could be right in it being a soldier bee, it has no pollin holders. but she is very big. smaller than the tipical carpinter bee and about 1.5 x bigger than the tipical honey bee.

I'm a really nice guy...=}

Looks like a drone ,male honey bee they are quite a bit larger than a worker.Is that a quarter that we are comparing it too? Its most definitely NOT a queen honey bee.The queen has a really long abdomen.The drones are bigger in diameter and a 1/3 again longer than a worker bee which are females.WD Rating: 3/5
