Twofer: Malibu Lagoon Underwater Film & Local Mountain Lion

August 29, 2013

You’ll be surprised at how much life is swimming and crawling around under the lagoon’s surface.
Shot 8/12/13 with an underwater camera attached to a pole and lowered from a rowboat. The single location looks to be near or within the snag sitting in the water near the covered viewing area.
Now posted on the EcoMalibu website.

Interestingly , you can detect a slight current even though the surface is glassy and devoid of wind . Circulation is occurring even without the afternoon prevailing wind pushing the surface water into the main channel., Can the millions of fish, crabs and Shrimp swimming around cause a current ?

Meanwhile, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area has posted on their FaceBook page, a photo of a mountain lion on top of a deer. The photo was reportedly taken Sunday morning, 8/22/13, on western Mulholland Hwy!

Ranger Kate K. comments:  This is P-23, a young female who has recently dispersed from mom. Of the 400+ kills our biologists have hiked in on, this is the only one they’ve seen right on a road, so it’s quite a rare sight! She dragged the deer into the dense brush shortly after this photo was taken for a little more privacy. Thanks to Irv Nilsen for taking this amazing shot early Sunday a.m. Contrary to some reports, this was a remote section of Mulholland Hwy and not near the Rock Store or homes.     [Chuck Almdale]
