    Found this "pickle bug" wandering the highway this weekend.

    You find the coolest stuff! That's why I love bug hunting in Arizona whenever I make it out that way!

    I've found the native whip spiders out there (currently keeping 3 of them) but have yet to find a vinegaroon in the wild. I had to buy mine at a show.

    They are pretty rare even when the area is right. There are a few places I know where to find them in abundance. At the place this one was collected they are pretty rare.
