Description

1 of 9 individuals seen; 4 adults, 1 subadult, and 4 juveniles. It was very cool to see 9 animals on a north facing slope (less sun exposure and therefor higher moisture levels under rocks) than under the eastern facing slope that had none. To be expected this time of the year when things are drying up, but nonetheless still interesting.
