I think it's sitting on a green-ish pot(?) just to the center/right of the picture.

Thanks,

Look 210mm from the front panel and 91mm from the base. I think it may have
been trying to calibrate some function..

I stopped looking when I found a spider husk in the lower left, near second row from bottom of front panel knobs/pots. probably two of 'em.

Ah, yes! It looks like it has fallen in love with a Posidriv screw-head. Perhaps there are more and would they have different part-numbers dependant on where they are?

Spiders in the plugins? That's nothing! I don't think
mine would work without the spiders and the stinkbugs.

For me, it is usually some critter trying to pimp my
ride with modifications to the vacuum hoses, wiring
harnesses, undercoating, and any sound deadening material.

Seriously, cars have been made for what, 150 years?

At this point in time, the designers have every millimeter
of the body and chassis in a computer, and know where every
hole the size of a mouse exists in the chassis. And, they
*still* can't keep mice out of cars?

For starters, they could stop making them out of tasty food.

Wire insulation made out of soy, sound deading made out of
corn, and undercoating made out of what?... Cotton candy?

Sorry for the diversion of the topic. I just spent another
day de-mousing.

The biggest thing that got into my plugins was my cat. I left a 1S1 on the ground like a slob and my cat wanted to sit on it.
As he tried to get on top he used one of the tubes as a foot(paw?)-hold and bent all the pins on the tube.

I spent a month last year demousing a convertible after taking
it out of storage. Besides having to strip out the entire
interior, I had to replace some of the A/C components
because the mice ate the PVC heating ducts!

At least the scopes have metal panels and generally keep out
the bigger critters. I have a 555 out in my garage now.
We'll see what manages to get into it.

I had an intervention at an ATM where a mouse was caught by the straps that carried the money.I laughed with my colleagues that when it released cash it gave: a banknote, a mouse, a banknote, a mouse ..., you could get your paycheck in new currencies - "the mouse"

It is surely an old spider.
But with the right Tektronix part number, one may find it at ebay.

What is the Tek part number prefix for BioParts?

Was working late one night on a plug-in made by the "other" test equipment manufacturer. The next morning when I went in to continue I had discovered that the "night crew" had been in there trying to help.

Be glad that is all it did. If there was a "interesting smell" the cat may
pee in or on it. Don't ask how I know...And mine wasn't on the ground.🤬

Never have found mice, but I did have a problem in Colorado years ago while doing a lot of solo mountaineering. Every night I was sleeping in my car (and I'm sure when I was away too), marmots would gnaw on the underside of my car.  Thankfully, they stuck with the undercoating, and left the wiring and brake lines alone!  I always checked before driving to the next spot.
About the same time, I drove from somewhere in the southern Sierras to Newport beach (SoCal). When I arrived, I wanted to check my oil, so I popped the hood, and something jumped out and ran off.  Probably a large ground squirrel- I'm sure it was really confused, but thankful to be out of the engine compartment!

One of our cats loves to pee in interesting places, so the Tek gear stacked in my office always has to have "uncomfortable" items placed on top to keep the cat off.  The other cat I don't have to worry about- the only place she pees is on the floor in front of the litter boxes...

It's a Allen Bradley pot. Low noise and sealed, really good.
