While hiking to the Sespe Hot Springs in the Los Padres National Forest over the weekend, I kept hearing this vocalization. (The low moaning one that repeats six times.) What creature is it?
A loud call like castanets clacking in a cattail marsh: who makes that sound? [more inside]
I saw a 'new' animal from my balcony this evening and have had no luck finding anything on the net that matches. [more inside]
Can anyone identify this mysterious sea creature? My sister saw four of them swimming at the surface in Boca Raton, FL. They were undulating like squids; when contracted they look like black slugs, when stretched they look like that fellow in the photo. An entire crowd formed to watch, as they were so very weird.
