On Pasqual Valley Trail. Large, approx. 120 cm. Went into defensive strike position and vibrated tail before escaping into the brush.
Found these lightly buried in a garden. We are debating what they are. Habitat is light shade slightly damp but well drained soil.
Tan brown seeds
Frill is pretty small.
