Skunk. I'm smelled them for years around here but had no idea they were getting into my backyard. I'll plug up wherever they're getting in. The next door neighbor has a booth at the farmers market so I showed her the video. Their dog spooks the skunk sometimes and that's when it sprays.

I had to set the sensitivity to maximum or it wouldn't have caught the skunk. I have to turn it down during the day because the wind blowing the bushes will trigger a video. I may need to put Vaseline on the camera over the garage so spiders don't put webs across it and then it gets triggered too much.

Skunk? Giant black snail? Chupacabra?

(Take two) I put a camera in back overlooking the patio and here's picture of a little visitor I had last night:

Good thing I had the patio door shut!

    Has a biblical ring to it, huh?... My wife found the snake
    (western diamondback?) on the patio, next to the house, this
    evening. I hosed him off, into nearby shrubs. I'd rather make it
    really uncomfortable, so he doesn't come back, vs. killing him,
    and getting that whole cycle going... it is a lost cause to have
    an antagonistic relationship with the animals here, but I have no
    problem establishing my boundaries. You can see two or three
    rattles in the picture, he's about a foot long -
