IMG_2600.JPG IMG_2597.JPG IMG_2596.JPG IMG_2594.JPG IMG_2595.JPG I went for my evening hike at Saguaro National Park East. I am always on the look out for tarantula burrows. I found two today but alas I only took pictures of one. They are quite plentiful if you know where to look. The two I saw today were approximately 1.5 inches across. It seems a lot of the tarantulas are doing some spring cleaning. The one pictured seemingly removed a lot of dirt from it's burrow. A lot of the burrows seem to be recently dug out.

Wow. Look at the diversity of that environment. Even at a glance, a very complex ecosystem.

No just admiring! I had some people that wanted to see what the natural habitat looked like for the A. chalcodes. So i went on the lookout for an occupied burrow and snapped pictures of it as well as the surrounding environent.
