It was a dark and stormy night... I'm not sure if the little feller had actually escaped, or whether I knocked him off the edge when I removed the lid. But there he was, on the floor next to the bin. A couple dozen, at least, of his friends were clustered near the top of the bin in small groups. I think mass exodus was in the planning stages.
There are a ton of them under the area I fed the other day, moisture seemed just right, smelled earthy, temperatures back down around 70... I have no idea why two dozen of them would pick today to venture out and see the world. Before today, 2 or 3 was the most I have seen on the bin walls.
We have rain and storms today. I hope that's not it - we get rain and storms frequently.
