    Not sure if it’s a Redfoot or a Yellowfoot, but this beauty was certainly someone’s pet!

    Itll soon be a dead one if nobody nabs it soon.

    @ZEROPILOT Ed, do you think it makes sense to look for it in the rain? What sort of areas would it be drawn to?

    After a good rain or early morning, right after the sun comes up.

    The rain makes them active. They love it.
    He'll probably be under a Bush or in some tall weeds.
    If it's cool up there, maybe he'll stop in a sunny patch first thing in the morning.
    Unfortunately they do blend in well.
    They LOVE red food.
    Are there any edible red flowers available?
    Mine will run across the yard for a red hibiscus or rose flower.
