And another..

animal joins our clan! This is Woody (so named by the boys because he is the color of wood) Mike caught it with his own two hands, on his first-ever tarantula hunting expedition in the desert. He went with Mitch and our friendly neighborhood reptile expert, and they observed and captured both tarantulas and scorpions. We were both aware of the very real possibility of rattle snakes, so long pants and boots were a must. Mike pulled his trusty LL Bean work boots out of the closet for the first time since we've moved. .. and was greeted by this surprise just minutes into their hike:

Apparently, his soles did not agree with being stored, unused, for so long in Arizona's dry heat, as they literally disintegrated with each step. Thanks to LL Bean's 100% lifetime guarantee, he has a new pair of hiking shoes on the way.
