We have a few. I've always liked what Edward Abbey wrote;
"Arizona is the native haunt of the scorpin, the solpugid, the sidewinder, the tarantula, the vampire bat, the conenose kissing bug, the vinegarroon, the centipede, and three species of poisonous lizards: namely, the Gila monster, the land speculator and the real estate broker."
Skunks are fun to watch early in the morning as they scamper down the street in your headlights trying to get away from you.
Naturally, I would be remissed if I did not mention the ocassional javelinas visiting neighborhoods and having breakfast with the gardens that can be plentiful.
Black bears and mountian lions do meandering through every once in a while stopping to get a helping of garbage and maybe a pet to slate their appetite before continuing their journey through the area.
Ya,,,,,no big deal for those of us living in the Preskit area. Much like you all in your neck of the woods, heh?
