Me too, Sergio!

ForestDragon Spotting
Spotting commented on by ForestDragon Hoogmade, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands8 months ago

It looks very similar to a rabbit or hare mandible (well part of one). I did a quick Google search to find some similar images. You would probably have to do some research on size to see if you could figure out which it is. https://www.google.com/search?q=rabbit+m...

This was a tough one! After a lot of scanning images, I may have found a close one. Not sure this is correct though. Check this: https://bugguide.net/node/view/238572/bg...

ForestDragon Sawfly Larva

Although this looks like a caterpillar, it is actually a Sawfly larva (a type of wasp). Unfortunately, many of them are nearly impossible to identify. Here is a link that may help: https://bugguide.net/node/view/112

This is very likely a Black Horse Fly. However, the distance from the subject makes me a bit hesitant to give you a 100% on that. Here is a link: https://bugguide.net/node/view/17584

Not a beetle at all, but a true bug. They are pretty little insects!

Fancy, but not a Slug Moth. :-)

ForestDragon Pellet from Red Shouldered Hawk
Pellet from Red Shouldered Hawk commented on by ForestDragon Tallahassee, Florida, United States8 months ago

Neat find! This is most likely a pellet, rather than scat. Many species of predatory birds will regurgitate the indigestible parts of their prey (fur, bones, teeth, exoskeletons). It's usually in a neat oval pellet, often found where they roost.

I moved this to the Birds section for you since it is created by/from a bird. :-)

Was this a captive animal?
