A chicken? A cow? (JK, looks like some kind of hawk)

@Jeff_T- Indeed.

Anyone want to even guess what this critter is? Some kind of wild turkey maybe?

Those are some AWESOME lizards and snakes, @bare65. Very cool.

It's not the weirdest thing I've found in my wallet. It once had a very weird beetle type thing in it, something I had never seen before. It took me a LONG time to find out what it was.  It was a wheel bug. VERY weird.

Oh, wow.   I've seen those before, but I had no clue that they bite.  Creepy looking things, that's for sure. 

 

I think the biggest bug I've ever seen here is one of these...

Those bite, too.

I have lots of grey squirrels, and also scads of rabbits. It's quite wonderful to see all of these creatures.

The only pic I have is the ubiquitous squirell.

@GabeU, The wheel bug didn't bite me -- it just emerged from my wallet and I was mesmerized, trying to figure out what it was.  I had never seen a bug with a volume wheel on its back, LOL.  I've never seen a water bug either. How big are those things??

Here's a sizable one.  I've never seen one quite this size, but close.

Edit:  I changed the picture as the one I originally had was not from the US.  A different species.

You all got some amazing photographs...

I'll have to dig through some of my youngest sons digital albums and see if I can post a few more for you all...

He always had a knack for photography...me, not so much, LOL

 

Here is another one of his pics...this one he took about 3 miles down the road from our house.

A desert tortoise

Although I see these all around where I live, I'm always in awe at how truly magnificent they are.

As you can see, they are easily camoflagued when attempting to cross the paved sections of roads out here, and often get run over.

New road signs were put in place out this way to help warn motorists of possible tortoise crossing the roads..

Every year, around the late August and September months, we have thousands of tarantula's coming through our yard...it's their yearly migration..the males are seeking out female companionship. Horny little buggers, hahaha...

 

We don't see too many Ladybugs over this way...


EEK!!!!   You can keep your tarantulas.  What I get are just wolf spiders, and though somewhat large to me, they're nothing compared to those hairy buggers you get!  Smiley Tongue  

 

@LMAO @ Hairy buggers...

 

and here I thought I thought I was the only one who used the word 'bugger'...

it's funny to see other people using this word...you have me cracking up.

 

Have you ever heard the expression.."Cheeky wee bugger"?

hahaha... still get a chuckle at the idiots that thought "cheeky little monkey" was a racist comment.
