Residents of La Savane

La Savanne is, I suppose, a suburb of Grand Case. I’m not sure if there is an actual town there or just a sign. At any rate, today I spent some hours in a field there and saw many interesting creatures.

My favorites were:

  • A fuzzy, yellow-green beetle.
  • A colorful caterpillar that I had not seen before.
  • A couple different small, green Orthopterans.
  • An impressively regal white moth with black and red markings.
  • Several interesting spiders, including one living in a pocket of web and another that seemed to be guarding an egg case shaped like a spiky ball.

Additionally, there were many familiar butterflies, some other small beetles, some very small freshwater fish and a horse skull guarding a garden.
