California Outdoors: Needing a fishing license to take a bullfrog, lost hunter education certificate.

Question: Why do I need to have a fishing license to take a bullfrog? They are a non-native species, have voracious appetites, eat many of our native species and should be removed wherever we can. (Robert, Merced).

Beware: There are rattlers among us!

According to Slyapich, the proliferation of rattlesnakes is all a part of a healthy, working ecosystem. “More growth means more seeds, means more rodents, means fat rattlers,” he said. “Mom can have 20-plus kids in late fall, around October or early November. Then they go in hibernation.”

Slyapich refered to the early seasonal surge as a “bumper crop.”

“We’ll see a bumper crop early,” he said. “The babies are smaller, so they warm up first, and that means they come out first.”

DeSousa said the male tortoise probably was a pet that got loose from a yard.

It was found Sunday after falling over the wall while escaping a dog. The fall caused the animal’s shell to crack into three pieces.
