Reptiles and Amphibians of Santa Barbara County INat Project

Today, I have founded a new INat project entitled Reptiles and Amphibians of Santa Barbara County (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/reptiles-and-amphibians-of-santa-barbara-county). This project is meant to increase our knowledge about the reptiles and amphibians that inhabit the Santa Barbara Region, one of California's great biodiversity hot spots. Please join the project and submit any observations of reptiles or amphibians you have seen in Santa Barbara County, California. The inclusion of details, such as behavior, temperature, humidity, weather, # of individuals, location in habitat, and any other information relating to the observation is highly encouraged.

Almost stepped on this guy (original position shown in second photo), yet he didn't move until I touched him. then it assumed the Gophersnake defense posture, hissing, mouth open, vibrating tail, and S-shaped posture. I eventually got it to settle down and then it just kept trying to slither into the grass, occasionally making weak hisses. The temperature on the bush it was basking on was 86.3 degrees F and the humidity was 51.4% RH.
