Observing the Reef - This video shows a symbiotic relationship between Barberfish and Mexican Goatfish. Local resident and Naturalist, Mary Sim pointed this relationship out four years ago, and minutes later I started trying to capture it on video. After hours and hours of footage¬†hitting the cutting room floor, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ozJ_wJ7kiMI finally pulled together a few clips to share. This footage was shot at a place I‚Äôve named, ‚ÄúThe Barbershop.‚ÄĚ Barberfish come there to pick parasites and the Mexican Goatfish will position themselves vertically, communicating¬†a need for parasite cleaning services.

All Things Reptile by Chance Stevens - The night snake (Hypsiglena family) is a small, harmless and technically venomous snake that inhabits most of Baja California. Near La Ventana, we have three species: the Cape Night Snake, the Baja California Night Snake and the Coast Night Snake. They are all relatively similar. The picture below is of a Coast Night Snake that I found in mid January. It can be difficult to tell night snakes apart and I can only offer limited help. The Coast Night Snake is the most common, and the Baja California Night Snake typically has more spots of dark brown and is slightly larger than the other two.
When I said ‚Äútechnically venomous,‚ÄĚ I was talking about how these snakes are rear-fanged with a weak venom that is just strong enough to help subdue its prey (small lizards, snakes and frogs). They are reluctant to bite, and completely harmless to humans and pets. Similarly, the most well-known snakes in North America, garter snakes, are also mildly venomous in this way and pose absolutely no threat to humans.
If you want to talk reptiles, please email ChanceStevens123@icloud.com or message 503-777-1404.

MasViento Wind Forecast - (Today: Sunny. North wind 18-22 mph) While ASCAT passes last evening showed light westerly winds over most of the southern Sea of Cortez, numerical model forecasts all show increasing north background flow today as a ridge of Pacific high pressure builds just to our north. Sunny skies will help trigger an added thermal boost this afternoon. Norte conditions will spread across much of the Sea of Cortez by sunrise on Thursday, then likely continue through Sunday with only relatively minor variations in wind speeds each day. Wes - daily forecasts: MasViento.
Farmers Market - The market is on! Every Thursday, located on the main road, Corredor Isla Cerralvo, just a few blocks north of Club Cerralvo.
La Ventana Pickleball - We are so excited to launch the Tango Azul Pickleball Resort! Tired of playing on cracked surfaces with bad lighting? Want to improve your game and meet fun people?

There will be a ‚Äútown hall‚ÄĚ Q&A at ‚ÄúThe Pickleball Palace‚ÄĚ Saturday, February 26th at 11:00 am to answer more questions! The Palace is located one block north of the elementary school in El Sargento. Please spread the word!

Local Ambulance Services - The ambulance is out of action again and needs urgent repairs. You may remember that it broke down last month and was being fixed for free in the government workshop in La Paz. That took 3 weeks, but on the 2nd call-out it broke down again. Lupita has now given up on the government and has taken the ambulance to a mechanic with a good reputation. We are urgently looking for funds so the repairs can be completed this week.  Please donate if you can to the ambulance PayPal account PayPal.me/ambulancia247. Cash donations can be made to any of the Ambulance Support Group members listed on Ventana View’s Emergency Services page. Chris.bradley3@gmail.com on behalf of the Ambulance Support Group
