Little critters and more

We have seen some amazing things on our trip and not just birds. Here are a few photos of other critters we have seen recently. Unfortunately there was not enough room in the truck to bring more field guides so many of our critters have gone un-identified. Test your identification skills and help us identify some critters.

    enjoyed your critters -had to look very hard to find the one little frog


  4. Great project!

    Your unidentified beetle in the second row is a longhorn beetle (Cerambycidae); its larvae live inside wood. Longhorn beetles are common all over the world with several 10.000s of species.

    The unidentified beetle in the third row is a tiger beetle (Cicindelidae), These beetles have a predacious live style, have a worldwide distribution, but are most diverse in tropical countries.

    Your giant spider in the fourth row could be a Golden orb-web spider (Nephila clavipes) which is distributed from the Southern US to Argentina.

    All the best

    Thank you Dirk! We’ve seen so many cool insects but never have room to carry more field guides. Thanks for the ID.
