Critters and such…

by on Oct.17, 2010, under Seasons, Uncategorized

We went for a hike on Friday.  We went down to the old Well #5 to see if it still had water in the tank, then we hiked around the road and up to Gunners Mate Road (about 3 miles altogether).  On the way, we found some interesting critters.

Here is one of a pair of baby Horned Toad Lizards that were only about six feet from each other on the road. He had just caugth a bug of some kind to eat.

Then, while we were resting, I knocked over a rock off the side of the road, and out crawled a centipede.  Pretty creepy… About 3 inches long.

And when we got back, we found a little (maybe 2″) baby tarantula crawling near the cabin.

I tried snapping a short video of him walking around…

 

Finally, the boys found bones from a deer out in the meadow.  Here they are trying to piece them together…
