the squirrel seemed to have been opened up a wee bit. not just run over. and it was on the bike/marathon path.


Is that a flying squirrel???



You guessed it:) I told Rocky not to drink all that Guinness! Or maybe its a new type of Frisbee >:D


That most famous flying friend, what a fabulous find!

I saw this nutria swimming in the canal near Gone Postal #3 (GC4K8BV).  It was about 2+ feet long.

Beetles I can handle.  Roaches?  Been to a bird house that was filled with them. 

 

Guess it's like squirrels vs. rats.  The fuzzy tail makes it all ok, right?

I seriously thought of The Mummy scarabs when I saw that picture.

You're lucky it was quick BB...otherwise I've seen them go in people's skin worse than chiggers!!  :startled:

I imported a few nutria for your viewing pleasure, Stan. The only thing out there when I placed the caches was some boring deer... :)

Yuck! I'm glad those beetles weren't there when I did that cache a couple of weeks ago.  I walked the 100 feet over to get the same cache while waiting on our order at What-a-burger and it just might have put me off of my appetite.

Bert, you sure you weren't doing one of TexasWriter and CornDoll's LPC's Bug Me Series when you found those beetles?

Let him cure out real good and turn him into a cache container. Natures best camo!!!

I should have scooped him up last week when he was all intact... he's a bit more difficult for camo now.

I saw this emu today at Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh My

GC1T112  on our way back from the Lone Star Roundup Event.  The emu was just on the other side of the fence from the cache and it made the weirdest noise.  I think it was a happy noise and not a defensive noise.  I enjoyed talking to the emu and listening to him make his noise.  I was busy watching the emu and so Stan had to find the cache.

An actual account of being bitten by a black widow spider. I have seen possibly 5 under light pole caches.
