Yvsa, the link you posted on snakes incorrectly listed the Western Diamondback as being 62 inches long. It is up to 83-almost 7 feet. The Western Rattlesnake is 62 or so. They made a boo boo. They say it rarely gets beyond 6 feet, which may be true for that part of the Country- but not in AZ, and this Brazos land oughta get the Monsoon rains...and be plush for wildlife..I'm perplexed. Now, the Western Rattlesnake rarely gets beyond 6 feet.
(checked Audobon's field guide)
My two year old needs to be on a trip with his mom, or we wait 2 more years for toilet training. We should grab Raghorn, find a way to take Yvsa with us (you know, with an IV bottle connection in the vehicle..crash cart...) Maybe you could meet me North, Rusty, so I wouldn't have to travel so far South. Unless it's on the way- which I doubt- when has Hawthorne been on the way for anyone outside a Loon?
I've always wanted to see the Desert there- different from the Sonoran.
