Aripeka Sandhills Preserve

Tonight we went to check out Aripeka Sandhills Preserve. When we arrived, there were a lot of lightning bugs blinking in the air, and we heard a chuck-will’s-widow bird calling. We saw plenty of spiders and a few scorpions, plus a southern toad, a Florida ivory millipede, and a mating pair of banded tiger moths. We heard something crashing around in the bushes but didn’t get a good look… we suspect from its movements that it was an armadillo.
