Re:


I think, for the moment, this is a Eupsilia tristigmata-Three-spotted Sallow
moth. I am really interested in moths. I may need to get a book next summer. This guy was about 5/8 of an inch long. Doggone, I should have measured him.

Re:


Caterpillar - I don't know what kind he is. I can't find him. I don't think he is an inchworm. He doesn't walk like one and his head is wrong. He is not a Luna Moth Caterpillar. He is a really little guy, probably an inch long. If you know what he is, I would like to know. Edited to add: I think this is Orthosia hibisci

Re: My Critters


Bunny, the one with the split ear. I am glad he is alive. I feared the blood would draw predators, but he is all better.

Re:


baby Possum (O'Possum for fancier people) Possums, without the O, live in Australia.

This morning I thought I saw a big rat by the propane tank. It turned out to be a baby possum.

quote:

Female opossums often give birth to very large numbers of young, most of which fail to attach to a teat, although as many as thirteen young can attach, and therefore survive, depending on species. The young are weaned between 70 and 125 days, when they detach from the teat and leave the pouch. The opossum lifespan is unusually short for a mammal of its size, usually only two to four years.

Opossums are usually solitary and nomadic, staying in one area as long as food and water are easily available. Some families will group together in ready-made burrows or even under houses. Though they will temporarily occupy abandoned burrows, they do not dig or put much effort into building their own. As nocturnal animals, they favor dark, secure areas. These areas may be below ground or above.

When threatened or harmed, they will "play possum", mimicking the appearance and smell of a sick or dead animal. This physiological response is involuntary (like fainting), rather than a conscious act. In the case of baby opossums, however, the brain does not always react this way at the appropriate moment, and therefore they often fail to "play dead" when threatened. When an opossum is "playing possum", the animal's lips are drawn back, the teeth are bared, saliva foams around the mouth, the eyes close or half-close, and a foul-smelling fluid is secreted from the anal glands. The stiff, curled form can be prodded, turned over, and even carried away without reaction. The animal will typically regain consciousness after a period of a few minutes to four hours, a process that begins with slight twitching of the ears. - Wikipedia

Re:


Oh, no! He is up against my back porch! He is against the little plastic fence I put there to catch my grandkids' baseballs, so they don't go under the porch. This little guy is not going to survive. A cat will surely get him. He is too young to be on his own.
