Keep an eye out....

Dick Holliday took this photo. Check out the size of the grains of sand. Looks like he's either standing pretty close or used a telephoto lense. Blends right in, don't it. Click on the pic for a full size view.

Just one of the many reminders that we are visitors to their world. :wink: :D

This year seems to be a "GOOD" year for reptiles.
Lots of rain means more vegetation, which means more rodents etc.
Guess what these "Babies" eat??

No one wants a lifeflight to Loma Linda Hospital to see the Venom expert.
You might have watched Him on T V, Venom E R on Discovery!!

Watch the pets and Kids, they seem to be more vulnerable, cause they don't watch where they walk/crawl/dig.

I have a picture somewhere around here, taken at Anza Borrego, a nice "Fat" one coiled up right in the road near a campground!!

I could be wrong,(me? never :shock: ) but it looks like he made a pretty good set of tracks on the right side of the photo. The scary part is that at least some of him (the rattling end!) is covered by the sand. We found a similar set of snake tracks (have to assume they were from a snake, no footprints, you know) while riding in the little dunes behind wash 22 last time out. They just kind of disappeared after a few feet. Now I know why!
Great picture. Thanks for sharing and reminding us that "we are not alone"!
If "pro" means yes, and "con" means no, is Congress the opposite of Progress?

We saw one out in OWVRA, they are Beautifull from a distance. I got a pic of him and he headed down his hole. Sure makes a dif when there isn't thick glass between you and them.

FYI, there is a rattlesnake vacine you can get for your pets at the vet. It's $20 for the first shot, and $20 for a booster each year, so it is pretty cheap.

I have 25 acres in north central AZ, and my dogs love to explore it. It gives me a little piece of mind to know that I have several extra hours to get to the dogs treated if bit.
If you can't be safe, be glorious
