I’m calling this roadkill or real because a few of of the animals we saw were dead. Okay my first category is ROADKILL. That would be the scorpion. A giant desert hairy scorpion. They can grow up to three inches long. The next roadkill is a gila monster. This is one of the only two venomous lizards in the world. Growing up too two feet long. The baby one we saw was only about ten inches long. The dead gopher snake. Being the largest snake in North America this constrictor can grow to nine feet long.
My favorite was the bobcat we saw chasing a jackrabbit. Now the two pictures I am about to show you aren’t ones we took since they were running. The bobcat, only growing to about 28 pounds max, would think a jackrabbit was like a buffet. Here’s why: jackrabbits can grow two feet in length and weight up to six pounds.
Here is the picture of the western diamondback rattlesnake that we saw.
This rattler’s poison is the most toxic of all ratters. Even though probably not deadly to humans this cytotoxic (sI do tolk sin) is nasty.
While hiking one day we saw two coyotes together. Coyotes usually live in small groups and eat anything. They were too fast for us to get a picture of our own.
I think that we saw a lot of really cool animal in the Arizona desert.
