Gypsy Moth Caterpillar ?

Yes! This year and last we've had bad outbreaks of them here in southern new england. They've eaten all the oak leaves and a lot of the trees look as they do in winter instead of how they should during the summer. If we have another year of them the trees may start falling down... Although most of the caterpillars died recently from a fungus that was introduced specifically to kill them 30 or so years back. So the chances of them eating all the leafs next year are slim (thankfully!)

TMM some special type of scorpion? I really have no clue just guessing here. I must admit that it does look rather alien to me. Tongue

Trifan, you are really good at this game!   Big Grin   It is a Jerusalem Cricket and it is dead.  I was at a gas station in the dog walking area and there were quite a few, all dead.  I read online that they are common but rarely seen.  I don't know why there were so many dead in one area.  They were all about 1.5-2" long.
