    Looks like its that time of year again. They are much smaller than the ones i found last year. I found 6 last week. They did not make it home. It was very hot, so there was no o2 in water I had in my bucket. I got this little guy two days ago. He is real healthy.

    Dan,
    If I am determining size right, this little guy would be about the same age as my 5. Trapper (the mother) was delivered to me in late December and I think you were finding lots of adults not long after that so my guess is these are the babies from the adults that were spauning in January - February.
