I guess he was sleeping in my bath tub. But we do practice catch & release. :)

Fast little buggers, aren't they? Unless you are infested, I say let 'em go. They eat flies, silverfish, roaches, bed bugs, mosquitoes, etc. Not to mention that they rarely make a daytime appearance, so they really do more good than bad. Your house, your call.

i'm not sure what those are, but I had one crawl out of the shower drain. It was about 1.5" long. Weird
