My tent doesn't have a floor and Kentucky has a lot of animals living in the woods. I had lots of insect visitors, including a crazy looking green bug that looked like a leaf. A couple spiders stopped by... lots of daddy long legs and a scary looking furry one. A toad hopped across my sleeping bag in the middle of the night and several inchworms tried to make the long journey through the tent, but they're too slow so they only made it about halfway across during my 10 day trip.

This was my favorite creature.
