This striped garter snake was large and fearless, it allowed me to get very close (no need to zoom) and instead of turning away shifted to look directly at me, awesome. I wanted to pick it up but it did not want to leave its sunny patch so i decided to respect its space hahahah.

This was one of the most ballsy lizards i have ever encountered in the wild, it displayed its brightest colors, bobbed at my girl friend and I and then ran straight in-between the our legs, it could have ran in any other direction but chose to establish his territory and fearlessness, awesome hahaha.

I collected data on all 5 communities. It involves the amount of water near Mule Fat will affect the number of Mule Fat growing in that community. My conclusion is inconclusive because many Mule Fat were found both the dry and wet communities.

My dad and i found this fox in the river above the waterfall on Chaney trail a couple years back. I buried it to allow it to skeletonize and recently dug it back up. I have the whole skeleton and am thinking of reconstructing it.

Papaya Carica papaya

Description

This papaya plant was planted about two years ago in this environment. It is non-native and native to the central Americas. Currently, it has fruit that is ripening. It is about 10 feet tall and the branches with the leaves spread out wide at the top like an umbrella. The leaves are held up by thin branches that seem like long, narrow green stalks. These hold up broad, thin leaves that are dark green in color. They look like leaves of a maple tree, except wider. The trunk is about 10 inches foot in circumference, and it is green-brown in color.

In the photos shown, the papaya fruit are nearly ready to start ripening, and are a dark green in color.

UPDATE:
The actual papayas themselves are just ripened, and are turning from a green color to a orange-yellowish color. There are small white bumps on the fruit that are rough to the touch, and the actual fruit inside is a nice golden yellow-orange. They are quite soft and therefore delicate.
