Horny Toad (Phrynosoma platyrhinos) . . . Belleville Mill Site, NV

I've only seen these in captivity - made my day to find them in the wild!

This is Vincent. He was in the yard waiting to welcome us when we arrived :) He is usually accompanied by two or three does and a fawn. He is in our yard constantly. He eats the fruit that falls off our cherry, apple and pear trees.

Gecko on the ceiling of my patio last night. This one is about four inches long including it's tail. I have seen as many as a half dozen up there. Once in a great while one of them will fall and land on me! First time it happened it scared the carp out of me!

Photo of Mama. I am so thankful that I get to wake up to this natural beauty every day. She often leaves her twin fawns in my yard when she goes foraging for food :)

Now I see exactly the origin of the expression "doe eyed". B)

Pool of garter snake venom(moderately neurotoxic in terms of North American Colubrids) on my hand.  No persistant armpit pain.  However within 30 minutes the area of the bite showed a temporary freezing sensation.  Still, I'm glad that symptom showed because it distracted me from the god awful smell from the musk he/she dumped all over me when I first picked the snake up.

Ouch!

Eastern coachwhips and rosy boas are both far worse pain.  Rosy boas because they're boas, Eastern Coachwhips because their mouth is far filthier than even a rattlesnake.  And they sure as heck don't have the sparkling clean gums of a fisheating moccasin subspecies.  As for my musking experience, the only known snakes to me that have worse musk than ribbons and garters are the subspecies of the salt marsh watersnake and maybe, maybe that of nerodia fasciata.  That includes fisheating moccasin musk.
