“Between 150-300 whales come past San Diego every day, relentlessly, regardless of the weather, from young juveniles doing their first trip by themselves, to single males — sometimes even a mother with an early-born calf.”

It’s copperhead mating season. One of the snakes was spotted near the Mall this week.

It’s mating season for copperhead snakes, which means the snakes are traveling more than normal — and this week, the National Park Service spotted a northern copperhead near the Mall.

Officers snapped a picture of the snake wrapped around a chain-link fence Monday in East Potomac Park. Although infrequently seen at the Mall, copperheads — which are venomous, but rarely have fatal bites — are common in the Washington area, the Park Service said.

Spiders prefer mating with older women – and they don't mind getting eaten afterward.

The other jaw-dropping discovery? Despite the benefits of mating with a young female – they're more fertile, they don't require a long courtship and they are less likely to eat their suitors – male spiders actually like their women a little older.

Hi Naturalists! If you are participating in the #citynaturechallenge2018, we would love a field report to include in the naturalist podcast (naturalistpodcast.com). We have set up a voicemail box so you can leave a message of your adventures (under 1 minute please!). The voicemail number is (407) 965-5789. There is no dedicated message, so please leave a name, rough location (park, etc) and city team as basic info. After that, we’d love to hear about the local biodiversity that you saw/heard/experienced. If anyone wants to sent photos or video, please address those to naturalistpodcast@gmail.com.
