This guest was found in a friend's garden. He was slow but faster than this guy.

I would like very much to have intruders like this (but I think it's not possible here) ;)

Slow but steady, and live very long.

Great picture... We had one crawl across our yard one time several years ago.. Don't know where he came from or where he was going... He's the only one we have ever seen here.

This is a neat portrait of your friend's guest.

I heard he is a frequent visitor there.

Applicable to humans as well. :)

Given the time they take to crawl, he must be still on the way to his destination. :) You may find him again in his return journey ha..ha..

Yes, I had the chance to touch him as well :)

Thanks all for your comments.

Hi KP, I saw a guy(s) or gals like this in Galapagos Islands. They were so big I felt like climbing up on them.
Next weekend (labor day) I am going to see General Grant and General Sherman (worlds largest living tree) and to camp, hike for a few days. Sequoias
After that off to Nicaragua to research on a hydro power plant for the college. There will be a lot hiking as we have to survey the area.
