Antomology: what is this strange bug?

Yesterday, my family and I saw a strange bug here, in Miami.

It was a yellow, furry, three-legged, non-flying bug about the size of a cockroach. We saw it at a yacht club, so there were salt water and sand in the area, and it was stormy.

Any idea what bug this could be?

    Since 'antomology' is presumably the study of ants, that limits our choices. Personally, the only furry 'ants' I know of are the wingless wasps called things like 'Cow-killers' and Velvet Ants. Maybe this is one such thing, but then again, maybe not. I's a shame you have no photo to help us.

    There are no three legged bugs so it must have been a battered insect that lost its legs. Maybe it lost its wings too. I would guess a bumblebee that had a very bad hair day but without pictures it is pretty hard to be sure.
