That's a pretty cool rescue story. Is this the first iNat observation in Iraq?

It may be, I have quite a few observations from 2 tours and 22 months in the country.

Yup, I think this is the first and so far only observation from Iraq, though hopefully not the last. Welcome to iNat! Do you have any pics of those legendary camel spiders?
