So endeth the Monday Mustelid series! I started writing about mustelids in December 2014, and today I present to you the last one on the list! Don’t worry, a new series will begin next week. I’ll post a complete series round-up later.
It’s (surprisingly) still spring in the high desert! I was able to grab these shots while hiking in Zion National Park. All of these were taken with my Sony A6000 and shiny new 50mm lens.
Welcome, dear folks, to the penultimate edition of Monday Mustelid!
NPR is reporting that three separate crocodilians that were captured from the Everglades and DNA-tested showed that Nile Crocodiles (Crocodylus niloticus) do indeed have a presence in Florida.

Steppe on over if you want to learn about a new mustelid!

Last weekend I got to visit the south rim of the Grand Canyon, which is where most people go when they visit the park. This time of year, it isn’t too busy yet, but in just a couple of months millions of people will be visiting the park. This year is the National Park Service’s 100th birthday, and they are really…
