Thank you kindly!
Actually for number 10 there are two native game fish to AZ, the Gila Trout and the Apache/Arizona Trout. My son and I knew the Apache Trout, but didn’t know it by Arizona Trout. I looked it up and found that there’s one more. Thanks for the fun quiz.
and to be technical, a Gila Monster is not poisonous it is venomous. I know a lot of people say there is no difference but there really is. Venom is normally injected/delivered by the use of fangs or stingers. Poison is usually delivered as a substance on or a part of the body/plant and is dangerous only if ingested or touched. Didn’t mean to get on a soap box but I’m a major reptile fan. 🙂
