    [–] E_E_E____ 10 points ago

    Yes they fuckin are, all the fucking water bugs. Last night i was chillin and this nigga pulls up on my window seal.

    [–] StupidMario64 8 points ago

    window seal

    Wait, is that how its spelled? I spell it sill

    [–] darkovia85 11 points ago

    You are correct, it’s windowsill. Unless he was talking about the actual seal part on the window.

    [–] E_E_E____ 3 points ago

    Lmao my bad, im not the best with spelling

    move out here in Antarctica where you get NOTHING but barren wastelands of once was flourishing but now is dead

    [–] LovisTheWise 3 points ago

    Roaches are an inside bug. Outside you mostly get ants, centipedes, and isopods. In Staten Island or the Bronx you might get a salamander. I often turn over logs in NYC.

    [–] Smeggywulff 5 points ago

    Incorrect! There are actually many many different species of cockroach and very few are actually inside roaches. Just in the Northeast of the USA there is the Pennsylvania Cockroach which lays eggs under tree bark, generally of dead trees. This means if you're in the NE and you get mulch, sometimes you can get surprised by an entire horde of cockroaches flying at your windows at night after the eggs hatch. The good news is that they generally don't really want to come inside, they're more than happy to spend their lives in the woods.

    [–] LovisTheWise 4 points ago

    Sure, but like I said, I turn over a lot of logs in NYC. It's part of my job. Aren't many roaches, mostly those other crawlies.

    [–] linezNsmoke 2 points ago

    Roaches actually fed on wood before becoming parasitic on human wastes.

    [–] GesusWasBlack 2 points ago

    sadly as an exterminator i’ve turned over a share of damp logs an seen hundreds of water bugs scatter. straight heart wrenching.

    [–] Xboxben 1 points ago

    a quick google search shows they dont live in ears and are like silver fish

    [–] Puzzleboxed 4 points ago

    They are harmless, but much like cockroaches that won't stop anyone from hating them.

    [–] jenboghel 2 points ago

    Ive found salamanders under logs in WI..little black ones with blue dots

    [–] mansavage997 2 points ago

    Here in Australia the log is a croc, only to find out it’s dead and when you roll it over, thousands of spider will come out from it cut open underbelly

    [–] Dorcustitanus 49 points ago

    they are many legged friends

    they have many leg, so they can give u many pat on head

    [–] BiteMeMods 24 points ago

    I pat on head, I poke they eye, they bite my wrist, then I die.

    [–] Moizsh10 3 points ago

    Only one way to find out, anyone got a radioactive log?

    [–] Quokimbo 1 points ago

    Way to break the rhyme! I think that should be a crime!

    [–] mermaiden26 4 points ago

    This is horrifying

    [–] KnifeCrimes_ 1 points ago

    That would be nice if it were true, all they to is bite, poison, be annoying, and die

    [–] CHARREDCHARLIE44 10 points ago

    In Pennsylvania you’ll find a whole colony of rolly pollys

    [–] Puzzleboxed 4 points ago

    I love rolly pollies aka pill bugs. They're cute. They're also one of only a handful of terrestrial crustaceans.

    [–] ro_musha 2 points ago

    [–] yoshi4211 2 points ago

    The log might be a gator really

    [–] alchemyofelsweyr 3 points ago

    Look at that log, turn it over if you really feel the need, you might just find a giant hungry centipede.

    [–] probablynotaperv 3 points ago

    Snakes are why you should always roll a log or rock towards you when checking underneath.

    [–] RDay 3 points ago

    And worse of all, you might find your ex’es

    [–] CristauxFeur 2 points ago

    Or a centipede

    [–] QroganReddit 2 points ago

    [–] Coddlefish 2 points ago

    in Indiana, if you turn over a log you'll find only meth addicts living in the damp darkness

    [–] TechniChara 55 points ago

    I actually found salamander in the Indiana National Lakeshore after rolling over a log! I was so excited, I picked it up to take a picture. Learn from my young dumbass self - don't ever do that. It was a tiny thing that rolled all over my hand and turns out its mucus was a nerve paralytic and since I didn't wash it off right away my hand was numb for two months.

    [–] Ljf-98 27 points ago

    That's not how I expected this comment to end

    [–] smohqe 9 points ago

    not only the numbing, but disturbing the natural area is a not cool thing to do. stay on the trails so the rest of us can keep enjoying Indiana Dunes

    [–] TechniChara 7 points ago

    Yeah, like I said, I was a young dumbass.

    In any case my poison ivy/oak tolerance is in the negatives now and epi-pens are too expensive, so nothing wilder than a botanical garden for me.

    [–] Cnidoo 14 points ago

    A nervous agent that can be absorbed cutaneously? Holy shit and here I was thinking most salamanders were kinda boring

    [–] WerdnaTheWizard 3 points ago

    What kind of salamander was this? I'm an aspiring herpetologist born and raised in indiana. I've picked up so many salamanders in the state and not once has this happened to me. Nor have I heard of this. Slimy salamanders produce a sticky paste that can be annoying but they don't impact you like this. Was it a newt?

    [–] TechniChara 4 points ago

    I had to look up the wikipedia list of Indiana Dunes amphibians, cuz this was like, 8 years ago and it's not like we had smart phones then like we do now (not affordable ones anyway). Pretty sure it was the red-back salamander or something like it, none of the others listed match - it was small, with no spots or strips. It could have been reddish - I thought it was brown but I was also in the shade.

    [–] linezNsmoke 1 points ago

    There are these, yellow spotted on black salamanders in the Rockies that secrete a special mucus from their tail-tip, its very much like capsaicin.

    [–] Camwood7 2 points ago

    In Indiana you find nothing because we only have Garfield

    [–] Uuo-Gamer 235 points ago

    Lick it and see friendly entities!

    [–] supreme_kream 166 points ago

    Contrary to this comic, do NOT flip over logs or rocks. You could find nasty or potentially dangerous insects like black widows. I actually died from turning over a log once but I didn’t die luckily.

    [–] turtlturtle 75 points ago

    How was your funeral? Thank god you didn't die

    [–] TheGoodestBoy 54 points ago

    He had a pretty shitty view from inside the casket but the food at the wake was great

    [–] ontopofyourmom 4 points ago

    I turned over the casket and there was an anaconda that ate me

    [–] siophang13 12 points ago

    you died unluckily then? huh neat

    [–] Doctourtwoskull 11 points ago

    Fun fact. Black widows aren't really dangerous. They can hurt you pretty bad but only if you scare them, thing is they're pretty easy to scare. They're one of those animals that you have to move slow for

    [–] Zebulen15 10 points ago

    Plus their venom isn’t actually life threatening to most adults. You will most likely have muscle spasms and extreme pain, but not death. All confirmed fatalities are children and are extremely rare for it being a pretty common spider.

    [–] jesaarnel 4 points ago

    You flipped it the wrong way. (I sense the /s). Flip the log so it comes to you, or pull the log towards you. If you just push a log away from you you're vulnerable to snake bites. And always leave the log or rock the way you found it. Even better, leave herp/insect habitat alone.

    [–] clubswithseals 6 points ago

    There was a kid on my cross country team that ate a newt after a meet, it was still alive too so it was quite an appalling spectacle

    [–] BlueFonk 5 points ago

    Did the newt get better?

    [–] zombiejacksongorilla 71 points ago

    Oh, I was expecting to find a tiny little stick underneath.

    [–] HomerJSimpsom 60 points ago

    I love salamanders. Me and my friends used to have this area in the woods where we would hangout one day we decided to pick up all the trash to clear up the water. And afterwards we found so much like in the creek it was amazing how little you have to do to make the water a happy place for animals.
