Arizona

Our collecting trip to Arizona was a huge success! We caught tons of lizards, found some neat snakes, and even turned up some interesting toads.  The photos are all posted on our Flickr site.  Undergraduate researchers Michael, Anna, & Madison are now professional lizard catchers.  Michael had the ultimate honor of being sprayed with blood by a horned lizard.
