October Update

October may be Alligator Lizard month, but so far we only have one Alligator Lizard observation thanks to garrettt331 (obs 912742). Otherwise, October is tracking well compared to last year. For this month, we have 217 observations of around 75 species compared to October 2013; which had 282 observations of about 85 species. With a week to go, I bet we can top both the number of observations and species! Good luck out there, we look forward to seeing what you can find!
