    Mystery Traveler

    We bought a typical VFT the other day and it had this white plastic ring covering the soil, and when we looked underneath we found this little guy: http://rs1268.pbsrc.com/albums/jj572/drbonest/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20160524_191340133_HDR_zpsmfev6dte.jpg?w=480&h=480&fit=clip It looks to my...
