Hi Stacy

Thanks for the picture. Yep, that's the beastie I'm looking for here in Massachusetts. if you still have him, any chance of getting you to ship him to me? I'd like to look at it "close up". Thanks for the information.

These guys are generally known to be in the northern parts of the United States and Canada.
