Lizard Tails

While getting ready to leave 'the desert' for a time, I have desert memories:

Horned Toads used to live in harmonious accord with rattlesnakes, prospectors, desert rats, birds, and tourists.

These may be lies; they are just stories, some of which go back to my childhood. Like a sign I could read in a bar which my father drank. "You don't have to be crazy to live here, but it helps."

Each rattlesnake helps man by killing between 1200 and 150 rats, mice, gophers, and ground squirrels every year.

The black widow spider is so called because she spends most of here time as a widow. She eats her husband soon after the wedding.
