    The giant beetle is very cool. Very rich fauna you have there :)

    very much money...
  7. It costs more than most people realize. But apart from the daily living expenses, it's hard to make a good living. Yes, it can be cheap if you go for a vacation of 1 month and know your way around, but if you want to make a living with insurance and a pension and be able to afford a car, it's not cheap at all. It's easier in the States. I have family from Mexico and most work very long hours. I have a friend who works at a bank in Mexico City and his normal work week is 60 hours with no overtime pay. His only day off is Sunday and he told me he usually works at least a half day for free just so he keeps his job.

    It's a Vaejovidae scorpion...not dangerous. The Buthidae (Centruroides sp.) posted are the dangerous ones.

    No sallies yet but I plan a trip soon up to see some in the higher country. I am way to low and dry for them down here on the coast. Thanks to everyone for the compliments and be sure to look at my other post if you enjoy the Mexican stuff here

    Hunter-MX I've always enjoyed your posts on FHF and I'm usually requesting more inverts! This is so cool that you're finding scorps. Makes me want to head down your way and get the bonus of buzztails and scorps.
