That is not a Ruby.

I can't imagine why you would think it was.

That centipede looking insect is scary!

The centipede is the most interesting thing in the picture.
Sorry, Itsmerick782, but I still can't understand WHY you think it could be a ruby.

Maybe the centipede is Ruby, a regular house guest that comes in from the garden rock pile.

Place their order and never get to window 2 for payment or pickup.
The pitfalls of being a 24/7 drive up web, easy to back out of the current session.
