Are you sure that's not a mummy?
Good catch, I hear them all the time but have yet to actually see a live one.

That's a nice picture, I've tried several times to take pics of those and they always turn out looking like a vanilla text book drawings. The angle and lighting and bokah all work to make this picture have alot of 'life' to it, even when the skin doesn't

Nice shot jj. The skin looks like it is still occupied.

Clint - that's an awesome video!!

jj - great find. I used to look for them as a little kid and collect them. I remember them being pretty fragile. It also drove my mom nuts
