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.

Nice.. I'd rather watch a spider molt than see an eclipse. Something epic, like nothing small happens.

I gotta agree, that's pretty cool to see :thumb: . Nice series of photos. I've never seen that. I've wanting to photograph a snake shedding in the wild. I've seen it, but no photo opportunity. I just realized recently that there is a whole bunch of forums down at the bottom here.... :lol: I think I'll have a bug to post soon here...
