Friends or Foes

Saturday, July 15th, 2017

By looking at this picture the question is are these two friends or foes?

At first glance it would appear they are friends and the Roadrunner is escorting the Gila Monster across the street to safety. What is really going on is the Roadrunner is sizing up the Gila Monster for a meal. This would not be an easy meal so the Roadrunner is taking time to assess the risk reward factor.

Gila Monsters are venomous and respect is given but the Roadrunner is use to a challenging meal. Roadrunners dual the dangerous venomous rattlesnakes and the winner is rewarded with a hearty meal and a full tummy.

The Sonoran Desert offers many fun, interesting, and diverse flora and fauna so come visit Tucson, AZ and give Southwest Trekking Professional Guiding Service a call to book a hiking or biking tour, 520.296.9661

Well Hello Mr. Roadrunner

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

 

Mr. Roadrunner came to say hi and was only about 10 ft away. I’ve never been this close to one. I wondered where his nemesis was, the coyote, but didn’t see him; probably making some sort of booby trap.

Back to the coyote and roadrunner theme from earlier this week – this guy was eyeing up the rental bikes. I was pretty sure a road bike would be the right choice!

Coyotes and Roadrunners

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

. Coyotes and Roadrunners were out in force at Starr Pass today. I’m not sure if the morning hike group got pictures of their coyote. I tried this afternoon, but they were going so fast! This was the best I could do…
