Saw masses of these floating off the shore of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Main portion is clear and gelatinous about 5 inches long with black dots.
The whale watchers in the pacific coast lagoons say that the infant nursing grey whales show the first growth of barnacles within weeks of birth.
This Kinosternid turtle was photographed in captivity in southern Baja, Mexico.
This teiid was observed during the day near Cabo San Lucas in the south Cape region of Baja, Mexico.
A bumble bee I presume...
I think this is Brandt's Cormorant
I've had a really hard time figuring out what the correct/accepted name for this species is. It appears to be a Cape Giant Whiptail (see http://www.californiaherps.com/noncal/baja/bajalizards/pages/a.maxima.html).
I think the name should be Aspidoscelis maxima (as on the above link)? Or is it Cnemidophorus maximus (perhaps an older synonym)? Or is it a subspecies of Aspidoscelis tigris, which is what the current taxonomy of iNaturalist sort of implies?
