OnemiJimeno, don't mistake defenses for aggressiveness! I've worked with these guys all summer and most don't even rattle, they try not to even be seen (which they're really good at) This guy I just happened to notice while herping at a stream that he was right next to, and my standing up while he was stretched out in the open 4 feet away triggered his very defensive position. They're really fantastic creatures, hike anywhere in PA and I bet you'll pass one...and probably never know the better.

LisaPowers, I have the Don't Tread on Me flag, I consider it very good advice. KarenL, done! Very interesting mission! And thanks williefromwi!! Means a lot!

Hi Alok! Moths are arthropods, so you could throw them in that category! Also, great series of uploads during a great week for them :)

Hey MichelleWallin, looks like this picture was already online. Not really the point of Project Noah to just repost pictures.

more ghost plant :) it's one of my favorites! It doesn't have chlorophyll like most plants, that's why it's white. It's also parasitic.
