Thanks. No we didn't really notice any gross smells with these ones.

Very nice spotting; I imagined it as fairly large until I saw the second photo!

Nice photo Emma but they are still disgusting. I found several within the wood mulch around a small tree. They are supposed to smell foul but I didn't really notice that. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/115...
