A collection of species recorded during a half hour rock survey.

While waiting for birds on a wind farm this morning, we decided to survey the biodiversity of reptiles and invertebrates under rocks. In a mere half hour we had two species of snakes, three species of Scorpions, millipede assassin beetles, numerous Baboon Spiders (all juveniles) and in excess of 10 species of ants.
