BORR Species Accounts (So far)

Although the focus of our research is on squirrel-snake interactions, we have seen various other species on the Blue Oak Ranch Reserve. It has been a pleasure working on such pristine land. Below are a few pics of what we've encountered so far.

California Kingsnake (Lampropeltis getula)

Yellow-eyed Ensatina (Ensatina escholtzii)

Crazy spider (I don't know my inverts, sorry)

Pacific Gopher Snake (Pituophis catenifer)

Western Skink (Plestiodon skiltonianus)

Alligator Lizard (Elgaria multicarinata)

Mule Deer

  1. I think that spider might be a bolas spider. Check out the youtube video for how bolas spiders hunt. It's absolutely amazing.
