American Alligator Alligator mississippiensis

Description

Posting a photograph of an American alligator --especially a terrible photograph-- almost seems ridiculous from a Floridian's perspective. These days, they're damn near ubiquitous with the state and its fresh water... A remarkable success/recovery story, these American alligators.

Speckled Crab Arenaeus cribrarius

Observer

Date

June 22, 2003

Description

The crab on the left is a speckled crab (Arenaeus cribrarius). The crab on the right is a mottled purse crab (Persephona mediterranea). Neither of these species are registering on iNaturalist. May be some classification/name changes? Not sure. For this photo, I want to tag/label via the crab on the left -- the speckled crab.

UPDATE on 29 DEC: A note from kestrel: "If it [the species] doesn't show up after you search the name in iNaturalist, click 'search external name providers' underneath and it will usually find it." Thanks again, kestrel!

Description

This is the mottled purse crab, Persephona mediterranea. I can't find the species listed under iNaturlist's "What Did You See" submission field -- so I can't tag it directly. Hope to figure that out!

UPDATE ON 29 DECEMBER: Thanks, kestrel, for the info!

Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake Crotalus adamanteus

Observer

Description

As of December 2011, this is the last Eastern diamondback I've seen in the wild since June of 2003. Granted, I don't hunt for Eastern diamondbacks very often (I'm usually looking for watersnakes or anoles), but still... You'd think I would've seen one between then and now. Not nearly as dense as they were when I was a kid in the 1970s.
