Take, for instance, critters.
In College Station, TX, I had snakes, rabbits, butterflies, deer, armadillos, and wasps. That's pretty much it. Mississippi, however, has already shown me chickens with rats in their mouths, fireflies (LOVE these cuties), snakes (different than my TX snakes), more roaches than any human should ever have to observe, birds I haven't yet ID'd, a very random & ugly lizard, and ... Phil.
Phil is a groundhog.
Edited: OH MY GOODNESS. I just realized these two photos don't look like the same creature. I think I have two Phils.
