I think I’ve driven in the parking lot but that was it. Is it better than the one in Parkland?
It's the best wildlife park in our area imo. All the good ones are in PBC. Green Cay has a better boardwalk, Wakodahatchee has more avian diversity, but this one is the only place you can see bobcats, green anoles, and alligators
Avian diversity? Is Alex Jones feeding those birds?
Very cool. I've seen their tracks a few times, but I've never spotted one.
I'm sure they've seen me though.
Just as you were spared, I'm sure they noticed my badassedness and chose not to engage.
Very cool, I like those guys. We have a similar one called the American five-lined skink (Plestiodon fasciatus), but that may be different from the southeastern one. Also common are brown skinks (also called ground skinks, Scincella lateralis). The lined ones and the brown ones are what I see most often, but I think there are several other species of skinks that can be found around here.
Bobcats are so cool. I've only ever see one 3 times, and one of those was dead (found the carcass out in the woods, no idea what happened to it). The two live ones I saw were very brief observations, and then they were gone. They are really damn good at not being seen!
Ah ok. The southeastern one is Plestiodon inexpectatus and it's apparently difficult to distinguish from fasciatus
@Sex Chicken also came across a bobcat one time
@Grateful Dude another Plestiodon inexpectatus
My Ladies Mom's x husband had one that was raised from a tiny cub/kitten.
It walked thru the house like a normal pet
Lots of crazy stories about it...it scared me shitless, but my lady would rough house with it and has scars lol
It was such an amazing animal, name was miesha
A dog attacked it and it KOed said dog with a single right hook with only speed and it's declawed paw...dog out cold for a few seconds.
Also had it's canine(?) Teeth removed. Could still bite viciously if it wanted
Crazy stuff to interact with a big cat like that
I have seen 3 cougars in the wild and only 2 bobcats...and that is in thousands of days in fairly remote areas...sneaky creatures no doubt
Drove up to Central Florida yesterday for a family thing. Left my house early in the morning so that I could squeeze in some nature time at a scrubland in Lake Wales:
Green anole (female, they can change color from green to brown):
Green anole (male) I saw on the homerun fence of a baseball field while walking back to my car:
Got busy, area 51 ain't got shit on me.
Went for a hike and found a little creek under a covered bridge-
Found some heads on a mountain.
Nice shot. Where you at? Wyoming? Montana?
Great pics @sparkuri
Making me jealous
Wyoming now, Yellowstone tomorrow, then Glacier.
Just saw a bear...gonna have to post that later as I took it on the camera.
Yellowstone is one of my favorite places on earth. Love that place. Hopefully it's not too crowded for you. Too many humans can ruin that experience.
8th. c CNN
A little more, finally got some service.
amazing pics @sparkuri
Go home tree, you're drunk.
Western slimy salamander (Plethodon albagula).
See these guys a lot down in caves. Also on the surface, but they seem to like the entrance zone of caves.
@Grateful Dude only took 50 shots to get the perfect one!
