I have been living in Tucson for the past two winters. So I'm not seeing as much activity as there is in the summer months ( I've been here for that too but, no pics to show right now) The various things I have gotten to see though I will post here.

IMG_2306.JPG Although this isn't the creature it's self, a mountain lion track. This is about a week old, I saw it when it was fresh but I didn't have my camera. The picture was taken in Saguaro National Park.

Greater short horned lizard on Mount Lemmon. I don't think I ever see this species in the low lands, only on the mountain.

I though this could be another tarantula burrow, but when I used my flashlight to see inside I could tell by the large eyes that it wasn't. It was a giant wolf spider! I was able to coax it out by tickling a piece of grass in front of the burrow. Look at those creepy eyes!

(edited to the correct species of spider!)
