You gotta love living in/near a forested area...

You guys really need to sound more excited that I have a car now :P

Anyways.. look what I found outside today: It was just under my car.. I guess the wind blew it out there...


I did some research, and it appears to be the caterpillar of a Polyphemus moth. the US gov. nature site has them listed as very common.. but they're not listed as being reported in this county. Cool, huh?

It's big& fat. I'm thinking about mailing it to an entomologist in Nebraska. I sure as hell dont' know how to take care of it.. but I don't want it dead....
