snakes & scorpions
I know this sounds weird, but I was a bit disappointed not to see any snakes or scorpions in AZ or NM as we drove thru. You often see these signs at the rest stops in those states. I'd heard that snakes prefer to come out at night when it's cooler. I've never seen a snake before that wasn't on tv or film. Maybe I really don't Want to. But it's kind of like going to LA and not getting to see a movie star or a traffic jam! :)
When I worked at Walmart when I was in high school, I worked in Pets, and we actually sold scorpions. I don't know if they still do that anywhere now. And we also sold white mice which people bought to feed to their snakes. Seriously. And I personally sold about 20, I'm sure. Poor, cute little guys.
