Descripción

While biking, I observed the lynx on the Valley of 10,000 Smokes Road in Katmai National Park & Preserve on the Alaska Peninsula in early morning. When the lynx saw me, it went approximately 25 yards off of the road into the forest where it lay observing me for roughly 10 minutes before it moved on. During this time, the lynx yawned multiple times and closed its eyes repeatedly, seeming to micro-nap. The lynx exhibited no visible or audible signs of stress and left the area slowly, looking back over its shoulder one time before moving out of sight.

Descripción

While filming juvenile salmonids, discovered a writhing nest of spawning lamprey at the mouth of a small tributary adjacent to Brooks Lake, Katmai National Park & Preserve, Alaska Peninsula

The lamprey (approximately 10-12) were very active, both actively and passively moving sediment whilst gyrating in a fairly tight group. Although small in size, they appear to be Pacific, not Arctic Lamprey due to greenish dorsal coloration and lack of dark splotch on posterior dorsal fin and tail. River Lamprey (Lampetra ayresii) are not found in this region of Alaska. After review footage in slow motion, was still unable to determine species ID through pattern of teeth: three large teeth on the supraoral bar and three sharp points on each of the central lateral tooth plates.
