Neighbor Mike shared this tastefully executed collage of creepy-crawly creatures he photographed on Bernal Hill.
In it, we see several members of Bernalwood’s recurring cast of natural horrors, including the
California slender salamander Western fence lizard, the Jerusalem Cricket, the gopher snake, and the slimy snail.
Apart from it’s innate taxonomical interest, this collection of local fauna provides an important reminder that Nature, while generally wholesome and wonderful, can also be rather icky and disgusting.
