Anyone familiar with horsehair worms? Just saw this on my sister's patio. I foolishly picked it up before taking pictures, but the whole reason I saw it was because it was waving the yellow end around in the air. I should have taken a picture of ...

I saw this big female box turtle crossing my parents' driveway earlier this week. Tonight, she is digging a nest alongside the driveway, a bit further up. If she lays eggs there I will place a screen top to keep the skunks and raccoons out.

Got lucky with this one.. I was picking up some equipment and walked over to the edge of the drive. I started hearing a hissing sound. Being that I was around a bunch of pipelines, I thought maybe a pipe was leaking. Took me a second to realize that...

I was spraying reptile tanks tonight and noticed Xena had a stuck on eye cap from her last shed. Of course that had to be taken care of. We hung out for awhile.

Success (I guess?) down near Reading. These things are EVERYWHERE. And to think I was worried I wouldn't be able to find any. I know I've said it before, but it really is a shame they're so invasive and destructive. They really are gorgeous.

Insectra, I have a question for you: Do Cecropia caterpillars purge their gut before crawling off the way Swallowtails do?

A lovely, LIVING, black ratsnake that I found in the road while on my way to meet my trivia team, tonight. I pulled him off the road and he's in the terrarium in the back of my car until I can relocate him to my parents' place. He'll be away from ...

While helping my mom unload plants and potting soil I took a look for the Abbott's sphinx caterpillar that I'd found at my parents' place a week or so ago. I found it, and it had moulted into its 4th instar (and my favorite color form) but it has ...

Since my parents are getting older they've lost interest (what little interest they had to begin with) in gardening. However, they're fine with letting the raised beds grow up with milkweed and dogbane. I was poking around their garden yesterday, ...

Pretty classic caterpillar damage to the Virginia creeper vines that grow up the outside of my parents' house. I'll have get out there tonight, or some night soon, and snoop around with the black light. Something good is living there, but I'm not ...

I just squealed like a little girl. I believe I need this in my life. This is my life’s goal. I’m throwing a tantrum because I don’t have this.

This is a very pretty little moth called The Hebrew (Polygrammate hebraeicum). I like the markings on this one because it looks like a smiley face.
