There was a Saturday article on the Arizona Daily Star website regarding how rattlesnakes are enjoying Tucson’s weather these days. (Click here to read story.) The dangerous critter angle hit a little closer to our Sunrise Canyon homes today. John Patterson found a Gila Monster in his yard. While Gila Monsters don’t move very fast, they are extremely dangerous. John did the right thing. He called Rural Metro to come and take the critter away. You should do the same thing if you see one.
