    Came across this odd bug this AM.



    No idea what it is. Looks like a Scorpion but clearly isn't. My Dog sniffed it but kept her distance.

    Funny how google is, need just the right search words

    Whip scorpions are arachnids that have a similar appearance to true scorpions, but do not possess a venomous sting. While they are not venomous, they can spray an acidic mix that has a vinegar-like smell.

    ^^ Are you going into the ashtray business?

    ^ I've never seen one of those before... it took me a while, but it's a whip scorpion.

    On one of those rare moments, we had a huge rogue storm blow through and this took refuge underneath the house



    This is a Hummingbird Moth. Usually these things blast around and you never see them stop and pictures are really hard to get. This guy decided to take a break.

    The mouse wasn't climbing a wall. I have tried and tried to find a button to turn this image to the upright position. Others manage it, it must be possible, although it begs a question why does the TD process rotate it in the first place?

    Every year during the rainy season tree frogs spawn in our water butts.



    The tadpoles are currently at varying stages of development.



    And this afternoon I rescued these two guys from the pool.

    Great pics Mendip. We get them in all our Lotus pots however we have those skeeter eating fish and they pretty much knock out all the tadpoles. Man at night when 4 or 5 tree frogs get croaking its loud but relaxing.

    This is our recycling cupboard. Anything recyclable goes in here and the gardener uses it to boost his meagr.... I mean generous wage.



    There's a hole in the bottom of the door that's needed fixing for years, but I can't...



    ... because there's a pair of toads who've been living in there for as long as I can remember and they come out through the hole every evening to feed.

    ^ All I did was a little kiss... and now I've got a nasty rash. Frogs are Ok Ootai, but that was bad advice to kiss a toad.

    I had to take Dan back to the vets today and both times I've been, this this guy has been there with his baby tortoise. Any ideas what's wrong JP?

    Just took the dogs out for a walk, and spotted this young Green Cat snake moving along the top of one of our walls. Probably about 18 inches long (they grow to around one metre), and harmless. We often get them curled up in one of the hanging baskets at the rear of the house.

    The dogs found this tortoishell in the garden. Very old, maybe evidence that they once ran wild here or maybe a lost pet once upon a time.

    Looks OK to me. I have 21 of the lil things running around that look the same. Hard to tell from the pic. Looks to be about 1.5 to 2 months old.

    Actually, looks like a Turtle shell, not a tortoise. I say this as Tortoises typically do have raised ridges on the top of the shell and the opening by the head area does not have the protrusions that Tortoises use to fight and try and flip the other one over.

    You are more than likely right. No forests around here these days. Plenty of man-made ponds around the rice fields and some of them hold water right through the year.

    Might well be, they are quite similar.
