    Speaking of snakes...

    anybody notice how many damn lizards have been out lately. I can ever recall seeing lizards on the actual trail. But I probably ran over at least 20 yesterday alone.

    Haven't seen any of those. But the jackrabbits are out in abundance.

    I did notice a LOT of lizards last night. Always see plenty of cotton tails as well. Are the rabbits with the longer black tail jackrabbits? Saw my first one of those a couple days ago...

    I almost crashed on my commute in when a big stick moved in front of me. Ended up being a very lucky very large bearded lizard (that sounds naughty for some reason).

    They are every where along with serious amounts of whiptails.

    I think Jackrabbits are the ones with the long ears.

    actually if you are in southern arizona the Jackrabbit is often confused with the chupacabra "the goat sucker" a nocturnal hemophyte that is rarely seen except by cyclists at night as their headlight spooks them on the hunt.

    I thought they were confused with Jackalopes in Southern Arizona.

    Seems I see a hundred on every ride. Lots of dead rattlers and other snakes on the side of roads too.

    I have been seeing a lot of Kangaroo Rats on night rides. Not too many lizards, but scorpions and spiders are all over the place.

    most of the lizards hibernate and are only up and out during the summer, the jackrabbit has black tips on the ears and a black tail opposed to cottontail round fluff white tail

    I try to avoid running over any sort a critter if I can. I manage to see them on the trail a lot on night rides (amazes some of my buddies - they will often ride up on me stopped in the trail and not notice whatever I stopped for until I point it out) and like to stop and admire or take pictures of them. They look cooler when they are not crunched anyways, haha!

    If I find a scorpion, black widow, wolf spider, any creepy bug really, around the house though, they get crunched!
