Monsters? Aliens? Help Me Auntie Em. I'm Frightened.
WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE?
And what vile creature is responsible? South Florida being a haven for man-eating creatures, the prospect of poking around in here is, at best, less than appealing.
[EDIT: Each of these holes is about three inches in diameter and, after some stick poking, at least a foot deep.]
Now, there are certain things I expect after being gone a few days.
Urine-soaked scratching post?
Squashed toad in the street?
Ants swarming the next door neighbor's front porch? (not to mention the rest of the house. Click on the pic, you'll see 'em.)
Sadly, and for a long while now...
But monsters in my backyard? No sir. Never seen that before. Actually, I think I did spy an armadillo once. And there have been Iguana sightings. As well as the occasional snake in the garage. (I keep a fifteen foot pole handy)
[Edit: I just noticed I capitalized iguana. I shouldn't have, but the main setting for Schmitty the Pirate is the island of San Iguana. Muscle memory. Gets me every time.]
But infestation I can not have. So help me loyal followers. I'm Stymied. I need one of Our Gang to help identify these Little Rascals. If anyone knows what lives in these holes tell me so I can head for the right hills.
(after stymied, I couldn't help myself)
