6/5/2016 - China Beach, San Rafael, CA -
Jonathan and I stumbled upon what we at first thought was a snake eating a lizard until we looked closer. To our surprise, what we were witnessing was a stale-mate - both amphibians silent and still until the lizard's hind leg twitched ever so slightly. This event drew us in closer to see the lizard had the snake's head gripped tightly in its jaws. On even closer inspection, we realized the lizard had tight hold on the snake's jaws, clamping them together making it impossible for its larger adversary to open its mouth, unable to attack. Picking up a small twig, Jonathan drew near the adversaries. Suddenly they split with the snake spinning off to the right disappearing into bushes downward towards the marsh and the lizard skirting left into the brush on the upside of the path. Then immediately, within what seemed less than second, the lizard ran fast as lightening across the path downward into the brush in pursuit of the snake. Did the snake attack the lizard's eggs or newly hatched offspring to trigger such a daring offensive move by the lizard?

British Museum Library and Archives
The Museum's Egyptian and Sudanese collections, among the most important of their kind in the world, are underpinned by the library of the Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan, which ranks among the top five libraries for Egyptology worldwide. The departmental library has been in existence since around 1860. Its stock enables research into all aspects of Ancient Egyptian and Sudanese cultures (prehistoric, pharaonic, Hellenistic, Roman and Late Antique Egypt and the contemporary eras in Nubia). The collection comprises 24,000 library items, the oldest of which was published in 1636.
