We have those, but I've never heard them called june bugs. The only thing we call june bugs are those brown ones that buzz around the porch light after dark.

But, upon doing some research, I guess those things are called green june beetles. Learn something new every day, I've always just called them the green beetles.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

And you guys do see that there's two camel spiders in that pic, right? One is hanging off the butt of the other. Still huge and creepy as hell, though.

Graphic Warning? No blood and guts? No unmentionables? Just a spider?

Somehow I feel cheated....

I've never seen the Child of the Earth. It's kind of creepy. That google search page showed a camel cricket too. My MIL is TERRIFIED of them. I think they are cute. They love the dark, like basements and such. Fun fact. If you turn on the lights, and then step between them and the light source, they will hop straight at you because they think you are a shadow. I know this because I was rolling on the floor crying laughing at my MIL who made that mistake and thought she was being "chased" by one.

This must be animal day on TRR or something. This is a Giant Golden Orb spider eating a freaking brown garden snake! Holy crap!

What is it with animals in Australia? They're either the most poisonous, the biggest, or the weirdest on Earth. I'd like to visit one day, but with all the perils that await in the wild, maybe I'll just go to Ruby Falls in Chattanooga where it's relatively safe and the worst that can happen is I slip on a wet rock and plunge 300 feet to my death on the jagged rocks below....at least it's better than being eaten slowly by a spider.

WS, I'll send you my current batch of chicks-they are already vicious little moth hunters at 3weeks old. Just this morning, a moth was attracted to the light in their brooder-it was fluttering along the side of the wire crate, and just as I was thinking 'I should try to catch it for them'-BAM-out of nowhere one of the chicks shot from across the room and gobbled it up. She was very pleased with herself.

Yeah, I hear you. But, if my mom opened this without warning she would probably have a heart attack.

I'll admit you had me seriously freaked out when I saw the last picture and thought it was a hair dryer on my tiny screen. Then my sister pointed out that it was a little earbud and I felt considerably better

We have these Luna moths everywhere here in the summer. We typically have 1 or 2 that hang out by the deck light at night. They are absolutely huge.
