DJ, tell’em what time it is! Ah yeah, it’s haystack time!! *EDM music thumps as a pika gathers materials.🎶🎚️
Haystack season is back. During the late summer these high elevation mammals will begin to gather mouthfuls of vegetation to build “haystacks” for their winter food.
Haystacks are often built in the same place year after year and have been known to become three feet in diameter! We keep a close eye on this indicator species as they are very sensitive to a warming climate and can help scientists detect subtle environmental changes.

Shy little Queen Snake I found the other day. So cute! Left her alone and replaced her rock roof after snapping a couple photos.

People have been urged to stay away from seal pups after one died when its mother was frightened away by visitors taking selfies.
The pup had been spotted on the beach near Llangrannog in Ceredigion.
The council put up signs and handed out leaflets asking people to leave it alone, but said the warnings were ignored and the animal died.
When will people learn to leave wildlife alone?

Rut season is back! ❤️ 
It’s that time of year when the bugling calls of the male elk echo through the fall air. Bull elk signal the mating season with a crescendo of deep, resonant tones that rise rapidly to a high-pitched squeal before dropping to a series of grunts. 
Rut is derived from the Latin word meaning roar. The elk bugle gave rise to the term "rut" for the elk mating season. #TeamPublicLands members always stay a safe distance back while observing these moody bulls not just during mating season but ALL year long.

Can you guess what this creature is? Do you need a ~hint hint~?
A large bony fish, they can reach eight feet in length and primarily feed on jellyfish. This one was spotted in Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary! (Photo: Sara Heintzelman/NOAA. Image description: A large white bony fish at the surface of the water with a fin protruding out.)

Kleiber with a very Kleiber-like pose. Also a pretty damn assured pose.
