    Well unintentional hunting LOL

    With a surprise shower here in SB we scrambled to cover up so items that have yet to make it into the house after our move. With a tarp covering the stuff we needed something to secure it from wind, ah that 4x6 will do nicely. Low and behold a male S. occedentalis was clinging to the underside of the board and not at all happy with the chilly temps. We had to get pics after I brought him inside (to keep from squishing him if he stayed near this spot) and will let him loose soon as it warms up in a few hours in the same area.

    I'm awaiting my kids camera chip so I can get the pics.....

    Well the wind and cold are not letting up and I'm fighting the urge to hold on to this young male, well I'm leaning twards male... femeral pores, yellow legs, point to male but lack of throat color... maybe very young male.

    But alas I have no room to properly house him so I MUST put him back in the woodpile soon as it's warm enough for him to move out there.

    Much better out there today so he is now back on his board where he was found. While the wind is not very warm today the surface temp on the wood was nice and warm. Enough to get him back to his own end of year hide for the season.

    I will just settle for my hatchling as my local "bloodline" scelop :) The little guy is now on small crickets :)
