Everyone can see the coordinates unless the taxon is threatened.
Public coordinates shown as a random point within 10KM of the true coordinates. True coordinates are only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation.
Coordinates completely hidden from public maps, true coordinates only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation. Observations with private coordinates will still be used to verify place check lists.
Our yellow lab spotted this little snake before we did, and we took a few pictures before releasing him in a safe location. He was about 8 1/2 inches long, dark beige with a black head, red underside, and an light tan ring around his neck.
