I ran over a skunk in the middle of Lone Pine CA one night. I'm thinking the natives were not to happy with me in the morning.

This Northern Leopard frog has taken up residence in my little pond. I have seen lots of toads and bullfrogs here in the desert but I didn't know these guys lived here too.

uh huh. Sometimes shy, but the other day walked up to the pond, he jumped off rock from far side, glided over to spot only 2 feet away directly in front of me to check me out, we both just stared at each other. It was like he was sayin, "Who?What the hell are you? and what do you want at my pond?"

JT, I'm in the Sonoran desert of southeast California. 100 miles east of San Diego and 100 miles south of Palm Springs.
Your frog looks like a bullfrog with that large tympanum?

The frog is probably pretty flattered that you think his tympanum is large.

Well, two teenage Hooligan Raccoons have declared a turf war
at my house, after a few nights of wanton destruction & carnage

I have been dealing with them at close quarters (I am very aware of how dangerous they can sometimes be)
yet I have no wish to harm them, I will stand my ground!

Here are pics from the interwebs, but I will try to get some actual shots during the next raid.
