These turtles are in a man made, stocked pond at Oak Canyon Community Park which leads me to believe they were put there.
Upon looking them up on californiaherps.com I read that they are an alien species.
There are at least 10 that I saw today.
Growing on Waldo Road. Seemed to lack pale centers and darker flowers of P. peckii. Looks almost more like P. pringlei, but that species is only known to occur in California. Filimants sparsely hairy, sepals uneven lengths, herbage covered in glandular hairs with dark tips.
2 tiger tail seahorses off Ao Por, male and female, seen together- assumed mating pair
19 spinosissimus on pencil urchins in sandy area off Koh Phai 7-13m
Koh Phai off pattaya, on pencil urchins at depth between 7 and 12m, mostly juveniles
Not sure if I saw the same pair 3 times over an hour and half or if they were different birds.
Buff ermine in my kitchen
Be careful when getting the close-up view of this flower, since the colony is over the cliff edge, where the chasm below extends sixty meters! This is functionally a blowhole, but the entrance to the sea is not covered.
May be nesting in or around the NPS offices, as it seems to hang out in the area. The picture was taken with an iPhone.
Seen in a grassy clearing amid a generally mixed oak woodland habitat.
