I have been known to find a beetle now and again.

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

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.

I saw a black widow this summer in Tennessee at a stop sign cache.  I decided that a DNF was the better part of valor.

I saw a cottonmouth about midnight last Sunday while doing the Welcome to Firethorne series (#9 http://coord.info/GC4NE9M) out in Katy. He was in my way, but I decided that an FTF was the better part of stupidity. :)

I just read that article too! I REALLY wouldn't want to run into those..... they're HUGE!

I know everything is bigger in Texas, but thank god we don't have anything like this  :startled:

They are the next Youtube stars waiting to happen - imagine the sound of a swarm of them coming in to attack.

 

Do not show these pictures to any fireants or they will get ideas.

 

Fortunately, Texans will cope and find a way to turn the hornets into a delicacy, like crawfish.Which they're just as big as.

As true as that may be, I for one haven't been attacked/killed by crawfish yet  :notme:
