This little guy...




...was helping me set up the Halloween decorations in my yard. He only took the aggressive pose when the camera was on. There I was digging in the dirt, bare hands and feet...and still taking pictures and filming barefoot. DUH!

Biggest bark scorpion I think I've ever seen. First one I've seen since I moved in. The neighbors still have their crap out in the yard for a yard sale - maybe that's where he came from.

Keep some liquid children's Benadryl handy and a needle-less syringe to squirt it in the mouth.

I almost stepped on a rattlesnake while walkng the dogs the Saturday before. Wife wouldn't let me stick around to take pics of that! They are harder to see when they aren't coiled...I might have pooped a little!

My wife got stung by one the other night while walking in the house. From what I could gather from her it hurts a little. Actually alot.

I went on a hunting mission and found it and vacuumed it up.

Since then we have found a few more hanging outside by the front and back doors.
