By far, our worst inhabitant of the Mojave Desert is the Mojave Green Rattlesnake. It's venom is considered to be the most debilitating and potentially deadly of all North American snakes. I tread very lightly during the warmer months for I cannot hear the rattle. I am borderline deaf, and even right on top of them, I cannot hear them.
We spotted this one on the road heading to the post office. The picture is not the greatest. It was taken with my husband's cell phone.
Next is one that is not dangerous at all, but can really make your skin crawl. It's one of our big hairy scorpions. We found him under a bale of hay that we had. His sting is about the same as harmful as a bee sting, but people can be allergic to them. We do have others, but this is definitely the biggest and we see them the most.
