Found this guy today. Had to convince the city I was looking for these guys and not breaking into people's homes. Part of the central Valley population.
My friend found this and sent me a photo wanting to know what it was. I told him and when he found out it was one of the most poisonous animals in the world, he thought he was going to die. I reassured him that just as long as he didn't eat(which he didn't) he would be fine.
