I saw two good-sized Gila Monsters and a four-foot rattlesnake during this evening's bicycle ride around Saguaro National Park. I won't stop for the rattlesnakes, but I did manage to get a photo of this little guy as he was crossing the road.
And of course, this leads to the question: "Why did the Gila Monster cross the road?"
- To get to the other side.
- Because of his crimson hide.
- He was chasing some stinkbugs and flies.
- If he bites you you'll swell up and die.
