Desert Museum

Our family had the opportunity to visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum near Tucson. What an amazing place! It was more of a living museum that highlights the plants and animals of the desert southwest.

A family of bobcats.

A nesting hummingbird.

Harris Hawks originated in Argentina and slowly made their way north. They arrived in Arizona about a hundred years ago and have adapted quite well.

A century plant.

Cactus flowers.

Agave plants.

I swear this lizard was following me back and forth along the glass.

This snake posed quite nicely.
