Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I live in the mountains and we found this guy on a pine tree on top of the rock crop in our backyard. It was pretty warm that day and seems to love the broke off pine tree and pine tree needles in the habitat we made for him. He moves around a lot and then is still for a good chunk of time. The kids want to touch him, but don't know if he is poisonous or not.
