Night in the garden is a mysterious thing to me, shrouded in darkness and cloaked by strange sounds. I imagine mythical creatures, ghastly insects, and industrious gnomes doing things I don't understand that somehow are as important to the health of the garden as sun and rain.
Whether or not any of that is true, I can state with 100% certainty that the Spotted Ground Gobbler does indeed exist. This slimy crawler was creeping around the yard last night when I let the dogs outside. It wasn't even the biggest one, just the least camera-shy.
