For today's Tuesday Tucson Trivia let's talk about the Gila Monster. It is the only venemous lizard in the U.S. and it makes its home here in the Sonoran Desert. They are very sluggish so it is actually rather difficult for a human to get bitten. For more info (including how they sound), click here.
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. (:
