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.

Wheel bug

Whoa was this thing cool! Funny enough, I had a friend just come back from Ecuador and showed me a picture of one from there. It held the grey color but also was a brilliant orange on its extremities.

I was walking around my relatives ranch in good old Mt Airy NC and this guy was on this pine branch right at eye level. Actually, I just realized there is a second one below it! Never thought I would see one, definitely the coolest insect I've found recently.
