Another fascinating part of field herping, along with all the other natural wonders we encounter, is the invertebrates! This forum is dedicated to both field and captive invertebrates.

Found this ~1.5" thing crossing the road at night after a rainy day in the backwoods of north Dixie County, FL.

I remember the first time I encountered one of these in duval county. How it pushed at the creases of my palm. Its a cool insect.
