with an American Coot
A juvenile Gopher Snake that we found on the edge of the trail of Mulholland Gateway Park in the afternoon.
Another male Western Fence Lizard that was roaming the edge of the hiking trails of Mulholland Gateway Park in the afternoon
A juvenile Southern Alligator Lizard that was found in the Mulholland Gateway Park on an afternoon hike. This individual had a really long tail that it was able to wrap around our instructor's hand like a prehensile appendage. When first spotted on the side of the trail, it was first mistaken for another young gopher snake, until caught and examined. The Alligator was then released a few minutes later.
