The other night while driving North of Todos Santos on my way to do some volunteer work for Tortugueros Las Playitas, I ran into this beautiful Baja California Rattlesnake(Crotalus Enyo). I got some vid but was a bit sketched since I have been bitten before. On the finger because i was messing around. Thought I was as cool as Steve Irwin. Nope, Got bit By a juvenile, resulting in near death and a week in the hospital experience! I still like them and think they are an awesome animal. Ira
I have been working with “Tortugueros Las Playitas A.C.”, a non profit organization aimed at protecting and conserving the environment of Baja California Sur with a special emphasis on Endangered Sea Turtle population recovery, habitat protection, and environmental education in Todos Santos, Mexico. We run nightly patrols up and down the beaches relocating nests to a protected incubation area. The Olive Ridley Sea Turtle nests during these summer months and this season we now have about 50 nests. A few nights ago we made a great rescue relocating a nest of 130 eggs which would have been eroded away by a big south swell which brought waves of 12 feet coinciding with a high tide the past few days. One night there was a nest which had already been 1/3rd eaten by a coyote!! The Coyotes are huge threat to the new nests. Last night we saw 7 Turtles and rescued 4 nests. The last nest was layed at 7 am!!! Very rare as it was already light. It made for a good photo and video too. Video will be posted around the 10th of September. Thats when the first nest we relocated this summer will be released and so included into the video. Ira
