This is pretty horrible but... interesting. A King Snake (the second one we saw) returned to the pond area and somehow grabbed a lizard, and ate it. I was lucky to be there with my camera but felt sorry for the little herp - I like lizards
Strangely, the wild birds were coming VERY close to the snake, even hovering over it as though they were going to strike it and these were small birds of varying types. I don't know if they're curious or threatened but they aren't very smart! That King Snake is fast." - Virginia Tucker

"New King Snake visiting on July 10th, 2014. We think it was the same snake as the first one we saw. It had a different pattern than the second, which I could compare in the photos. We handled it just enough to get good pics, then it went back up the hill towards the Live Oaks and chaparral. Clearly, they keep coming to the same area for food and drink. I've seen dozens of lizards as well but they're harder to get photos of." - Virginia Tucker
