Thanks, Mike.  They do have a sort of prehistoric look to them.

Very cool critter--never have seen one as they don't get this far north very

about 35 million years in the CO fossil record--accompanied by Hackberry trees 
which are their host plants. I think I detect a trace of Ag in that schnozz.
