Tarantulix
Encountering a tarantula (this one is a Mexican Red-Kneed) always halts a hike for a dozen minutes or so. They seem so out of place but then you see how much sense their body design makes in the desert. I usually catch them crossing a clear area with comfor...

Lepus Allenix
Meeting an antelope hare is like meeting a humble ambassador of the desert. A tall, slender running machine with long, alert ears always scanning. Their unusually large size has startled me more than once as I think there's a dog sitting there perfectly sti...
