when i lived in corpus i had about 3 or 4, if not more, in my yard, including the mom with her babies. scooped them up and dumped them in the monte in front of my house where my dogs wouldn't get to them.
now that i'm back in maravilla, i have had possum, many huge iguanas (3 had their last visit in my yard due to my vicious labs), tarantulas, lots of scorpions, a vinegrillo (look this one up and you may freak out), and my famous male peacock.
life is always interesting.
Ugh! I could have gone all my life without looking at a picture of a vinegrillo! I looked them up in google images and now I can't even walk around without my shoes on - even in Michigan! Thanks you, nauticab, for contributing to my skitishness.
