  •   ebrpd Couple of reminders - Public safety will be dutifully enforcing the 10pm-5am curfew and violators will be cited. Take only pictures and leave only footprints; please keep your distance and respect all wildlife. Bring plenty of water (for you and your dogs), dress in layers and apply sunscreen. Rather than parking at the end of Stanford Ave., park at the Ohlone College parking lot for only $2 and enjoy the walk up! Click on the geotagged location above for a map. FM 3d
  •   cmillerb Awesome!!! 3d
  •   ebrpd thank you @cmillerb! @naeldotorg took a beautiful shot 3d
  •   ebrpd follow our friends at @savemissionpeak and visit www.ebparks.org/savemissionpeak for more information. FM 3d
  •   moria66 Good call @ebrpd it's so crowded at Stanford and the FPD are writing tickets like crazy! Ohlone is a better parking situation. How can we organize a relabeling of the pole so people can see what they are looking at? And I'm really enjoying horse heaven lately! 3d
  •   ebrpd Thanks @moria66, we talked with our exhibit design folks and unfortunately, there's no plans to relabel the pole because the consensus is that people will put on new stickers and tags anyways. We love horse heaven trail too, and one of our naturalists saw two coyotes at dusk there while leading a group of hikers! FM 3d

ebrpd For #foxyfriday, here's a photo of a #redfox at #coyotehills. Red foxes were introduced to North America in the 1850s for hunting and the fur trade. Now they are found all over the world. A distant cousin to the #native #grayfox, they prey on rodents, lizards and invertebrates. FM #whatdoesthefoxsay #ebrpd #ebrpd80 Photo courtesy of Davor Desancic 3w

ebrpd Holy tadpole, Batman! American Bullfrogs are native to the eastern United States, but are now found in many parts of the world, including our East Bay parks. They are voracious predators, and often prey on invertebrates, rodents, and other frogs and amphibians. FM #bullfrog #frog #ebrpd #ebrpd80 Photo courtesy of @fishguyjosh 3w

ebrpd This is a tarantula hawk, a type of wasp that preys on tarantulas. The female stings a tarantula, thereby paralyzing it. Then it lays a single egg on its abdomen, and upon hatching, the larvae bores into the body cavity and eats the spider from the inside out. It avoids eating the vital organs first to keep the #tarantula alive for as long as possible. FM #repost from @roving_ranger #ebrpd #ebrpd80 3w
