Jumpin’ Horny Toads

Thursday, August 25th, 2005

I found this little guy today as I was watering the trees. He is the tiniest desert horned lizard I have ever seen. Isn’t he a cutie?

Can you find him? He is about an inch in front of my finger.

Mama Mia, it’s a Gila!

Saturday, August 13th, 2005

A beautiful female gila monster was spotted about a mile from our house. One of only two species of venomous lizards.

Three new residents came to live with us this week. Larry, Curly and Moe are their names, at least temporarily. They needed a new home and as a surprise for me, Chris brought them home and made a large fenced in yard for them complete with wading pool. They are very sweet and cute. I enjoy waking up in the morning to the sound of gentle quacks outside the side windows.
