Mid month, Observed the first neonates of the year, in both mohaves and hogs. The place is already drying up and its a bummer.

One area I hoped would reveal something interesting was the only rain pool with tadpoles in it, on the hog site. Unless in rains more, the pool will dry up before the tadpoles metamorph and I will miss the opportunity to see if hognose are attacked to that area. So far, there is no attraction, as no hogs or hog tracks have been seen in the immediate area.

Yesterday, neonates of the year, one from last year and nice adult female were observed.




Of interest is, they are larger then hatchling size. This is common, its rare with observe true hatchlings of any species OUT. The do grow some before visiting the dangerous world of the sun. I have seen a few 4 inchers, but most are in this 6 inch range.
I did encounter a problematic event, One hog may have been observed twice, which occurs, but it was over 200 yards apart and 1 1/2 hours apart. When I go back, I will take exact measurements. But from the photos, it appears to be the same animal. It may well have been 300 yards. Some speedy arse snake. Also observed a box turtle up in a bush. An arboreal box turtle. hahahahahahaha
