Camera Critters #2

I trapped this critter in a little jar under the flap covering the skirting at our campground trailer in South Carolina in October. The lid was tightly shut for over three weeks, and when I set the jar on the dinette table in the sunlight to take a picture of it, it started moving around very vigorously and I was surprised it was still alive. After another couple of weeks of entrapment it died. I'm sure all of you know what it is and how dangerous they are. We have found several others before and are careful, as are the propane gas vendors and repairmen.
