Sonora Desert Museum
Tyler's parents came to visit for a week some time in September, I think. During which time, we finally got a proper visit to the Sonora Desert Museum. We have tried to go on multiple occasions but were foiled every time.
The Desert Museum isn't really a museum, it's like 30% museum, 70% zoo, but with only animals from the Sonoran Desert in it.
Also at the Desert Museum, you can learn all about the 5,000 different snakes and insects that live here, like the kissing beetle that likes to eat the soft, thin skin on your face and mouth while you sleep. Welcome to Arizona.
When we first moved here, I was pretty sure that the environment was doing everything in it's power to kill me. From scorpions to kissing beetles and jumping cholla, I knew I would be dead in 5 minutes if I ever got lost out there. Now that I've learned a few of her secrets, I think I would last at least 45.
