Located in the small town of Paradise, outside the closed Skyway Lodge Motel (also called the Carousel Motel), is what appears to be a giant bug, a ladybug to be more precise. It's been there at least since 2007, but might be on borrowed time, as there are some tentative plans to hopefully one day turn the property into an apartment complex. The motel has been there since, at least, the late seventies and consists of 16 units. The entire property is currently surrounded by a chain link fence and can be found on Skyway Road.
