PresentationPresented by Sandy Reith, Pima County Parks and Recreation

Arizona is home to a great a diversity of venomous and poisonous animals. Most species of venomous animals use their venom primarily to subdue and kill prey. Because humans and pets are much larger than the prey of any of these animals, a bite or sting from most of these animals represents more of a physical inconvenience than a medical emergency.  However, some species have powerful venoms that may be life-threatening. At this program Sandy Reith of Pima County Natural Resources explains the biology and adaptations of some of Arizona’s amazing creatures, including rattlesnakes, scorpions, and Gila monsters.
