My hubby and I have purchased four acres in the Palo Verde foothills, hoping our house will be finished by the end of June, but we often visit our property to enjoy the wildlife. We had some luck in one day of looking around the property.
We believe the snake we found under a "no trespassing" sign was a coachwhip, not adult.
I'll also post pictures of the lizard and scorpion we found.
Any help identifying the lizard would be helpful. I think that the scorpion, based on it's very large size (as big or bigger than a mouse) is a Desert Hairy Scorpion.
We think the lizard could be a Desert Spiny, but couldn't really tell.
