At the age of 43, Bryan recalled, “The California kingsnake ambushed the alligator lizard, seizing its body. Yet, before it could maneuver the lizard for a head-first swallow, the lizard clung to the snake’s body.”

The influence of social media was instrumental in catapulting these images to worldwide recognition.
