    Late Night Visitor

    Found this guy in the bathroom sink as I was getting ready for bed last night (er...this morning about 4:00). He died shortly thereafter...

    There was a guy on the pen forum that made pen blanks out of those little guys. The blanks sold for quite a lot. Made a neat looking pen.

    Use to have those around where I live. Find one under almost every rock you'd turn over. Have not seen one years now, do not know where they all went.

    Apparently, they all moved to New Mexico. I've lived here off and on for 35 or so years and had only seen one in al that time until about January of this year. Since then, we've found 13 in or around our house.

    Ryan's right...the state bird is the roadrunner. Very cool birds. Meep-meep!



    We have one or two that visit our back yard regularly to feast on the field mice and kangaroo rats that are attracted to the birdseed that the doves scatter on the ground underneath my wife's bird feeders.

    The state insect is the tarantula hawk, which I've never seen. Good thing, too, because the shotgun holes in the walls might be hard to explain to guests:

    Vaughn,
    the exterminator we use spray for crickets to keep the scorpions away, says it's their favorite food. get rid of the food source and they don't come around. just a little tid bit in case ya did't know.
