You gave me some good feedback regarding a rattlesnake I ran across a few weeks back, so I thought I'd give you another challenge.
Attached is a photo of a skeleton (I think). Here are some details:
· Altadena, California on a property next to the San Gabriel Mountains about 10 miles north of Los Angeles. Altitude about 1600 ft.
· Found clinging to a vertical pole on my neighbor’s (Mimi) front porch patio umbrella.
· Length 3-4 inches.
Unfortunately, I haven't been as helpful to Bob about this thing as I was when he came across a Southern Pacific Rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus) a few weeks ago. Are those ribs? Legs? My guess is some kind of centipede exoskeleton but I am summoning the distinguished readership for their opinion. Please make sure to alert any entomology aficionados that you know to help us out.
