This little dude was khaki green, very shiny and had two long dimples down his back. These dimples changed over time to one large one on top and on his underside, like he was deflating.
He got camera shy, but when didn't have camera, his legs came out forward and then retracted like you can see in the photos. He had no back legs and seemed to propel himself from front only. This was observed in garden at farm, in over 80 years, the farmer has seen nothing like it and we are all so intrigued.
