Yep. Actually, it's the Ford Evaluation Center, and is apparently now owned by Harley, as of 2004, but close enough. :D

Hmmm, I ended up manually finding it then looking for a note on it. The person that posted the note said the exact opposite

Anyway... who is this handsome little guy? (And I mean the critter, not the human )

OK... for some reason I'm not able to post the picture as an attachment, there's some kind of errror happening... so I will do it as HTML and post the address if someone can't see it.

I'm heading to bed now. Unless I have a few minutes to pop in and check before work I won't be on until about 6 pm EST. So if someone gets it and can prove by posting other links and others agree they got it, don't wait for me

Oh, and I don't need the latin name, the common name will do

I'm at work and can't get a picture together right now. I'll post tonight after I get home from taking my bride out on a date.

Lol... I thought this would last at least a page Good job Phinz. What's cool about these little guys is that they are known as a living fossil. They were thought to become extinct about 11 million years ago. They were discovered again in 1996. Some people dispute this and argue that this is a new species. Just thought this was interesting
