Super excited to find this legless lizard at the Farm!!! Another volunteer had been digging up some weeds near a peach tree and unearthed this guy. It was living in some recently planted loose soil that is mostly loamy and regularly irrigated. The farm is within 500 feet of the Tijuana River.
Found under a tree, Looking for food. Color was brown and gray.
This is a wild tokay gecko that has been living in my house since it was a hatchling, we have the front door open everyday, but it prefers to stay inside, usually hiding behind the TV during the day and venturing out at night. Very shy and nervous compared with the common house gecko's that live here also.
Possible Eastern x black kingsnake as shown at http://srelherp.uga.edu/snakes/lamget.htm (bottom right picture). Note "broken chain-link" bands characteristic of E. Kingsnake, but also abnormal spotting between bands.
Late afternoon, 80's F.
Located near stand of pine trees just uphill from a restored wetland.

A friend of mine was doing some gardening in downtown Lompoc after 2 days of heavy rains. He was digging up some tall grass and underneath in the dirt there were 10-20 small salamanders that appeared to be eating ants. They were 2 1/2 to 4 inches long with dark slimy skin. I was very surprised to see so many, and in such a rural location.
