When I first saw this great metal sculpture at the Desert Museum I thought it was a depiction of our local peccaries the javelinas (commonly and incorrectly called "pigs") but a staffer informed me that this is, in fact, a Warthog. Do check out its amazing eyelashes!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
