Thanks for the suggestion! I really have no idea what this is. It's way too small to get really noticed. I'm hanging out with new kids, YEAH KIDS, in my neighborhood and I got them interested MORE in spotting animals and plants than they already are. They visited my place earlier and they pointed this out for me. :-) They'll be joining Project Noah soon! They actually have 100+ pictures already gathered. :-) They're at the age of 9-11.

Nice earwig, it's been a long time since I haven't seen one of these (I usually see earwigs crawling in the nooks and crannies when I was small).
