I saw one of these on a ride this morning. She was just trotting away from the bike trail on the San Gabriel River as I noticed her. She was north of where the 605 curves over the river trail, I think.
The picture shows a much thicker animal (cannis latrans) than the skinny thing that I saw today. Next time I'll take my camera and try to have it ready. I am not the journalist that some of my nephews are becoming.
This one looks hungry like the critter I saw. I didn't see any scorpions.
