Photo Of The Week

This is a featured photo of the week. I will update this weekly with a favorite photo.

  • Common Name: Desert Pupfish
  • Scientific Name: Cyprinodon salinus salinus
  • Photographer: Nate Nealley
  • Date Taken: May, 2018
  • Location: Death Valley National Park, USA.
  • Classified as endangered due to its
    limited distribution, they are known from
    only two locations in Death Valley. This one
    is endemic to Salt Creek. They have been
    introduced to other areas with limited
    success. The population varies seasonally
    with changing water flows. These fish are
    extremely tolerant of harsh conditions: high
    salinity and water temperatures from 32 F (0 C)
    up to 116 F (47 C).
