Field herping

Found some cool stuff today. All specimens found in northwest Georgia.

Southern devil scorpion, Vaejovis carolinianus.

Red salamander, Pseudotriton ruber.

Flat millipede, Brachycybe lecontii

Pipevine swallowtail caterpillar , Battus philenor.

Spotted dusky salamander, Desmognathus conant

Unidentified frog


Wow, that’s quite an outing!

My family can’t take me outside without expecting to spend an extra hour flipping rocks and logs for critters. I was really happy to find the scorpion, I found one but it bolted down a hole before I could get a picture, the second was just a few rocks away without a bolt hole.
