Snakes, Turtles and more snakes

Hi everybody.  Its me, Lillia. Today we visited the Chihuahua Desert Natural Park.  It is a only a few miles away from our house.  well, we were driving on the desert road.  my dad, spotted an animal crossing the road.  I figured out what animal it was.  TURTLE!!!!!!!!!!!  SO we pulled over. . . so we got a good look at it.  We figured it was an endangered tortoise.  so we let it go and hopped back into our car.  So we continued driving.  a few seconds after we did, we saw a rattle snake out of my sister’s window.  It was just laying on the side of the road.  so we got a good look at him (in the car).  And so as soon as we made it there, we started walking along the trail.  Dad was in front of us just to be safe from RATTLE SNAKES.  A few minutes after we passed a few signs, we bumped into another RATTLESNAKE!!!!  AAAAAAAAAHHHHH! RATTLESNAKE!  on the path.  RUN! So we found a different path. soon,we got to the end of the path on some benches my dad found in the bushes, a 4 foot long rattlesnake skin. But there were lots of ants on it.  so my dad flung them off. ” AAAAHHH!” the ants hollered.  And my dad made funny comments about the rattlesnake skin.  Like. . .

Rattlesnake: “I’m taking a shower, do do do do do.  now I am going to put my skin back on. . .  AAAAAHHHH, who took my skin?!?!?!?!”

Other rattlesnake: “ha ha your naked ha ha!”  (I added that part).

And so we took it home and put it in the garage.  It turned out to be a great Sunday adventure.  See the pictures below and click the links to see the videos
