Advertisement After looking at this series of photos, which show things a lot more clearly than my bare eyes did, I am thinking that this is mating. Is that right? Finally got some shots of how a solifugid tries to bite. They're not the clearest, but my clear shots never really show the compound chelicerae, because my clear shots are of motionless, relaxed animals. Large-ish wolf spider. Small, dead desert hairy scorpion. Tiny baby solifugid. I also saw a baby tailless whip scorpion, but couldn't get a photo of it before it scuttled sideways down a hole. That was the first time I'd seen one of those in real life. ---------- Post added at 04:20 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:15 PM ---------- Might as well toss the herps on here as well. Long-nosed snake The long-nosed snake was hunting this little man, who lived another night due to my interruption. (No worries, this was clearly a well-fed snake.) The most cooperative Colorado river/Sonoran desert toad I've ever met. That's it for last night. Thanks for looking!
