Jean got her wish of seeing her first Gila Monster of the season yesterday (May 8, 2013) on our walk in the canyon. It was the best-fed monster we've ever seen.Anne says: 'Best-fed' seems like an understatement! Step away from the buffet!
Seriously, don't mess with this or any Gila Monster, because:
It is against Arizona State law to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect the Gila Monster or to attempt to engage in any such conduct.Not that you could lift this one, but still.
