Observed a coast night snake (Hypsigiena ochrorhynchus) consuming a side-blotched lizard (Uta stansburiana) on the Grotto trail within the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area on April 13. I first noticed the side-blotched lizard at 3:45 pm with its head in a burrow on the side of the trail, but when I tried to pick it up it became apparent something was holding on to its head. I stayed and watched as the night snake slowly emerged form the burrow to consume its prey over the course of 45 minutes. Once finished the night snake slithered off the trail into some low shrub cover. It was no more than 12 inches long.

Cones were very similar to Pinus washoensis, resembling miniature Jeffrey pine cones, but prickles were definitely outcurved, and foliage was yellowish green. Good Pinus jeffreyi is mixed in the same stand.

This appears to be a small, isolated relict stand of these yellow pines, and may be in the process of winking out, although no obvious mortality or disease was noted.

Rough Greensnake catching an orbweaver spider. It got close to the web and then stayed there for what felt like 10 minutes (not sure it was waiting to figure out how to catch the spider or because I had disturbed it). After a while, it finally caught the spider and seemed to have no trouble eating it. My first time seeing a wild snake catch its prey!

A large rock formation was present on the other side of the ravine (photo 4). Was cold and sluggish, but curled up into a defensive coil when touched. Would hiss when grabbed. The temperature under the tarp was 49.4 degrees F and the humidity was 88.2% RH.

I discovered this surprise in the morning while I was misting down the scorpion tanks and she emerged from her scrape to drink the water. This one in particular had been hidden for weeks with only the pedipalps occasionally visible. Unfortunately this meant I missed seeing the 1i scorplings before they molted. She gave birth to a litter of nine, although only eight still cling to her back; one precocious baby had already left to roam the tank.

Stebbins (1985)* elected to change "Colorado River Toad" to "Sonoran Desert Toad" to reflect more precisely its distribution, habits, and tolerance of arid conditions. The explanation for that change is logical.
