I seen a Oregon garter snake, but it evaded me and in the stir I stumbled across this guy. I'm not entirely sure if this is the Oregon Alligator lizard, but based on description and range maps I believe it to be accurate. If anything it would be a hybridization.

A small snake along the trail. A few other visitors had found it and were trying to figure out what it was, so unfortunately it was a bit riled up when I came along. I suspect brown snake? Advised that they give it a little space since it seemed agitated and everyone headed down the trail, so hopefully the little guy is alright

Usually we get sea lions inland during the winter, usually they stay in the waterways at the end of Eight Mile road. but this one actually decided to venture right behind my house hehehe. It was incredible to see this far inland. Sorry I couldn't get any better photos. The sea lion kept splashing and playing around and wasn't surfaced long enough to get any decent pictures.

Well Dang!
I'd been eagerly watching my owl box since an owl visited it for one day in mid October. Only squirrels had occupied it since. At dusk yesterday I got excited when I saw a face with white on it which would rule out a squirrel. Grabbed my camera, turned on the flash since it was so dark. Dang it, that is not an owl either. Has to be a pretty small possum to get in that opening.
Photo 2:
Taking The Slow Elevator Down
When the interloper saw me, it sank out of sight in slow motion, was hilarious to watch. I made all kinds of interesting and coaxing sounds but it refused to look out again. This morning no sign of it. Back to hoping that someday a screech owl couple will move in & raise babies.

My dog kept barking, barking nonstop at her kibble bag in our garage. When I went to check inside there was a juvenile opossum at the bottom of the bag who looked like it had feasted all night and into the next day. We gently tipped the bag over and the opossum eventually lumbered out into the woody part of the backyard between our neighbors house and ours where it usually resides. My dog wasn't happy we had to get her a fresh bag of kibble in case the opossum had gone pee in the bag during its post-binge food coma.

We puzzled over this juvenile crab molt because it was so large for its juvenile coloration. The Cancer productus (Red Rock Crab) I find of this size have all turned solid reddish, so I wondered if it could possibly be Romaleon antennarius. The underside is heavily speckled. One photo shows the crab in a friend's hand for scale.

Funny story...
On 17 June 2020 (Durham, North Carolina, USA), there had been a heavy rain in the early morning and it was unseasonably cool afterward. I was taking my dog on a walk when he grabbed something off the ground but spat it out. I was surprised to see it was a chilled, but living, dragonfly, and not one I recognized. I captured it for some studio shots, including some on vegetation in a yard. It later flew off.
Two-striped Forceptail - Aphylla williamsoni (female, body length = 75 mm, wingspan about 95 mm)
bugguide.net/node/view/28713
Records I see on BugGuide, and the range map in Beaton, Dragonflies and Damselflies of the Southeast (Univ. of Georgia Press, 2007) indicate it is mostly a Coastal Plain species. This was in the lower Piedmont. In honor of my companion's prowess, I designate the collection technique as the Detain Odonata Gently (DOG) method. Photo of the apparatus is included with this observation!

Is it a fish? Is it a slug? Is it a fishy anemone? I do not have a clue what this is!

It is about 30mm long and there were a few of them in the sand - outgoing tide nearly on the turn. Most were buried and only the "fan fin" was showing.

Resting on the wet sand, when the sand collapsed it arched it's face upwards (2nd and third photos) and seem to spawn capsule from somewhere - there are 2 floating in the 4th pic.

Totally hypnotic, by the time my sister-in-law and I carried on the brother had walked 2kms away from us!
