I was trying to roll my bucket of bullets into the house when this little fella came walking my way, as if I pissed him off or something. Walks like a wasp...... WTF is it?

The first bug looks like a crawfish had sex with a beetle grasshopper or something.....the second, well, I think I'll have to look in one of Carl Sagan's books to find its home planet.....

(ETA - Bastiat had the comparison right, guess I need to read more before posting)

I would suggest Barlowe's Guide to Extraterrestrials

I'm pretty sure on this one.......the first is a male liberal and the second is naturally a female liberal in heat.

Is it just me, or does that critter in the fourth pic (or, the first pic of the second critter) remind y'all of a vagina?

note to self: always live somewhere where stuff like that cant survive the winter.

Nope..that's not a Camel spider...has to be a sun spider...

Either way, I would be running......to get a shovel to smash the damned thing...


Oh yeah...Where is Dr. Frige?

You guys in AZ sure do have some freaky looking bugs out there.
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 5:22:10 AM EDT
I think pictures of spiders should be considered a COC violation.

We have some weird ones in Florida too. We have one that kinda looks like a Mole Cricket but has a LARGE set of mandibles and fly-like eyes
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 8:50:35 AM EDT
It's a Chupacabra I tell you.

Just imagining something like that, but the size of a Rottweiler, makes me want to shit myself in terror!

Link Posted: 2/15/2006 9:08:08 AM EDT
FWIW, Sun Spiders and Camel Spiders are both in the Solifugidae family.
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 2:47:09 PM EDT
Put the mole cricket in an ant farm and see what he digs. Might be cool.

I know what I'll be dreaming about tonight...I'm a DDT man myself...
