    Odd trade(plants vs bug)

    Ok, for anyone in the desert SW(AZ, NM, TX, etc. or the Southeast, i.e FL, SC, Gulf states) I am looking for vinegaroons. Have a few plants I'd be willing to trade including

    Macodes petola

    Begonia prismatocarpa

    Begonia thelmae

    Ficus radicans

    Cissus amazonica

    Begonia glabra

    Utricularia longifolia

    Bacopa monnieri



    If these buggers occur around you, instead of maybe squishing them or shooing them away, send them to me!

    I've lived in Phoenix since '75 and I've seen coyotes, javelina, tarantulas, scorpions, black widdows and even a gila monster, but I've never seen a vinegaroon. Where do they hide? I must admit, I never even heard of a vinegaroon, I had to Google it

    But if I happen to see one.....

    Wow there ugly big bugs. I googled it too and said they could be found under dead/fallen trees.

    Under rocks or other cover, or in rodent burrows. They need to be near a source of moisture(so they are often found under rocks near water or other places where the soil will be slightly moist).

    To save anyone a google search here is a photo. And they are 100% harmless. Their main defense is spraying a mixture of acid from the base of their tail which is comprised mostly of acetic acid. Smells sorta like salad dressing. The claws on the front, though formidable looking, are pretty much useless for defense.

    Kinda looks like those spider-lookin' things they eat on Fear Factor.
    I don't want EVERY Sarracenia, just everyone that I see!!

    Those are closely related. We have small native species in FL and the Desert Southwest. Though I doubt anyone would come across them(supposedly in FL they like basements and hiding in such places as treebark and stacks of cardboard).

    Here are the ones they ate on Fear Factor. Shame as they are fascinating creatures.

    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.
