Not a great picture, but wanted to post this for posterity. When I tried to get closer it slithered away into the ether. Seemed like a nice-sized individual.

Finally found one!

A Tree with a nut-like pod that has a pit and is sticky on the inside. It has a very strong scent. The odor is a very up ripe almost pear like smell. The tree does not flower and occasionally drops these very hard smelly pods.
