First horned lizard ever seen in the wild. Wish we could have gotten some insitu shots but it would not sit still so we caught and took a few pics then let it go on its way. My daughter fell in love with this lizard so it was hard for her to say goodbye.

Best looking Desert Collared Lizard I have ever see in the wild. Nice adult male basking in early morning sun of Death Valley on our first family trip there in May 2010.

A very common desert plant, but I think I've seen it dried up and dead more often than alive and green.

Sizable little man, under a rock around 4000 ft. Web was a bit chaotic, and it had just molted. Signs that it's Kukulcania: deep foveal groove, eyes clustered at center. Apparently males have these crazy long legs and palps.

We were pretty surprised to find toads at the base of Darwin Falls. Possibly a remote population of Bufo boreas? Needs a little more research...
