Just curious as to what animals/creatures you have found while doing a mod, or mantinance or whatever to your truck?

Ill go first

When installing the wiring to my KCs I found a humming bird between my grill and radiator. It was squished down and under/between them...poor thing was half melted and looked like it had been there for awhile...how it got there Im still confused about.

Stock Rims!

i have a spider that lives in my passengerside ext. cab door.. he casts webs all the time over my amps, they look pretty cool so i leave them for a while sometimes!!

in my neon a few years back.. i went to penn state for the weekend.. and as i was pullin in to the campus/ happy valley.. the engine started to struggle badly.. opened the hood.. and some of my spark plugs had basically fallin apart.. i had it towed to a shop for the weekend.. when i picked it up, the mechanic said he found a squirels nest on top of the engine near the firewall, and they must have been chewing thru my spark plug wires!! he oonly found one squirell tho, it was stuck down near the transmission somehow!!

that a cat had got stuck between the fan and the radiator
(he was dead! must have been there for a day or two)

Once while driving this spider just dropped down right in front of my face. Luckily I had my window down and just tossed it outside. Spiders seem to like my truck. I have found one dead one, two live ones and almost everyday when I leave for school I find a new web in the bed of my truck. I also vaccumed a dead cricket out of one of the defrost vents the day I got the truck. Other than that, no finds.

On our '86 Ranger, a mud dobber wasp made a nest on one of the sun visors. That truck had a squirrel problem. They would get under the hood and eat stuff. My truck is parked where the '86 used to park, so I just put a bag of moth ***** where the truck parks and I have yet to have any problems from squirrels. We had a Contour parked there for a while. It wasn't a good idea to drive it, so it didn't move for a while. When we tried to crank it, we got a good deal of smoke from near the underhood fuse box. Stupid squirrels got to a wiring harness and chewed it up. That is another reason why I put the bag of moth ***** there. I do not want that happening to me!

A small finch got caught in the jet stream of my rack and slammed into the back part and died in one the openings. I never even notcied it till I got out and saw him stuck in there. I gave the lil critter a burial in the woods by my job, sappy no?

Cicada under hood, butterfly over radiator (cool looking black one that i mounted in my house). And flies seem to always be attracted to the outside of my truck. I was outside one day and counted as many as 5 flies on it at a time around my passenger side door.
