    On a nice vacation here in Tecate Mexico. Of course I'm looking for tarantulas, so any tips would be appreciated. :)

    Please try and find some centipedes as well. That would be cool.
    Best of luck with the Ts! I know nothing about herps so I won't be able to ID sadly..

    The lizards are western fence lizards, I think. I’ve seen that frog before but don’t know the name. Also you have a Jerusalem cricket.

    Was flipping rocks and hiking for maybe 4 hours yesterday. Was my last day so no tarantulas. Though I did come close with one burrow. Unfortunately it went between two very large rocks and I couldn't dig after it any more.

    Pretty sure. Have lots more pics of it if you need it.

    Lucky you! I have no idea how rare they are but I flipped rocks in San Diego last weekend and found none.

    @Venom1080 Wow! Such nice pictures! Is that blood I'm seeing in the 4th pic? :troll: did you get nipped? :)
    Yes this is 100% an aztecorum juvenile. You got so lucky. They're worth hundreds of dollars here

    Thanks. No, just rubbed raw from lifting rocks all day.

    So good to hear. :) I thought it was, but wasn't sure. Def the highlight of my trip.

    Found two of them actually. Quite far apart, easily a kilometre or so. One halfway up a small mountain.
