I was flipping some logs and saw a fair number of these large centipedes and I saw an alligator lizard run by and figured I must have spooked it and then I saw another one dart by and it circled back around and went after one of the centipedes.

Here is a video of getting the centipede oriented correctly so that the lizard could gulp it down:

We watched the roadrunner kill the giant centipede by picking it up, shaking it and then flinging it to the ground, over and over for about 5 minutes! Then I think that he just dropped it in the nest because he was immediately back to jump up and grab a grasshopper off the wall and take it away. Passed through the yard multiple times with a bug in it's beak.

Description

These snails were present in large numbers behind the Dune Line. The have been previously identified as Otala lactea, and are said to have been present at this location for almost a Century. I have an issue with this identification, as there are some notable differences between this snail, and typical Otala lactea, First, these snails only seem to grow to about a maximum size of 35mm. Second, the shells are almost alabaster colored, with little variability. The animal is much darker than Otala lactea, and the shell is thinner despite ample sources of calcium. It is my opinion that this is a distinct sub-species of O. lactea, or another member of Otala. I would suspect that only DNA analysis would be able to answer this.
