When asked to describe what is unique about Arizona, many will think of the curving tail of a scorpion, the patterned scales of a diamondback rattlesnake, or the quick flick of the Gila monster’s tongue. The venomous and poisonous animals of Arizona have come to symbolize the state itself. They are a vital and beautiful part of the region’s landscape.

In this talk presented by Sandy Reith of Pima County Parks and Recreation, you’ll learn about the biology and adaptations of some of Arizona’s amazing creatures including, but certainly not limited to, rattlesnakes, scorpions, and Gila monsters. Expert information will enlighten you, revealing new aspects of these treasured and respected creatures.

Presentations at 12 noon and 2 PM.
