They live in Kentucky? I've never seen one in our woods, but if they're nocturnal that explains that. I may have to start taking night time hikes. Fascinating--thanks, Melody!

Yes indeed, they live in KY. Both the male and female images in this article were found outside my back door at the light. I let them cool their heels in a cottage cheese container overnight and set them free near the woods (where I photographed them)
