Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Field Trip

A lovely rainy day for our Saturday BIO class field trip to ASDM Wasn't expecting an aquarium section (all these animals exist in the Sea of Cortez). These eels are fascinating - they pop up and down from the sand. Seahorses Can barely even find the fish it's so well camouflaged. LOTS of snakes in the reptile room - this one is a Mexican Pit Viper. I liked that he/she is kind of posing for their pic - the others were mostly less cooperative. I thought these little lizards showed a lot of personality :-) Add caption Bobcats, keeping out of the rain. An ocelot staying dry. I've never seen a snake do this open-mouthed thing before. He/she was just sitting there like that! The Mountain Lion was beautiful!!! The Mountain Lion is in the tree in the background - shortly after I took these pics, the branch snapped. The Mountain Lion fell, in stages, but was totally fine! A deer taking a sies
