Found at a Las Vegas construction site in the middle of the desert. I am 100% sure it came off of the plants and trees delivered for landscaping of the property. Just curious.

Would these plants and trees have come from overseas? I'm assuming that huntsmans are not native to north america - am I right?

Hmmm...well I have read at least two posts on this board by North American members wishing that they had huntsmans in the US....odd.
