    You get some of the coolest snakes pics! Y’all have some of the prettiest native snakes in the country where you’re at.

    While hiking in southeast Arizona I came across three Gila monsters in one day. I will normally see one or two a year.

    This was the first one, approximately 12 inches long.

    This one was the smallest of the three, approximately 8 inches.

    The largest of the three was maybe 18 inches or more. Definitely the largest one I have ever come across.

    I think you’ve been social distancing a little too long!

    I've been social distancing long before covid-19 came along.
