After working in the hot 102 degree sun I was ready for a shower. Thankfully I turned the water on and did not step into the tub because I just entered the worst science fiction movie ever. Even with a drain strainer this creature kept coming up and through into the tub. A good 8″ to 12″
One Arizona species, the giant desert centipede (Scolopendra heros), may obtain lengths of 8 inches or more. The bite from these large invertebrates is very painful.
Did I mention the 4′ rattlesnake that sat in the shade by my truck door a few weeks ago? Or the deadly translucent scorpion that came up while I was digging a hole for planting?
Some of you read about the killer cows preventing me from getting into my mailbox. Of course the multitude of fire ants and black widows.
Then again I never saw a butterfly fight off a bee. The butterfly was calmly sitting on a flower when the bee came over and tried to push it out of the way. A few good strong wing flutters and the bee took off.
Or have jackrabbits and cottontails sit within a foot from me.
Or see the twig I planted grow into a tree with baby figs.
Don’t know where it is heading but I can dance on this ride.

Two huge black and one mean brown cow strolled by the mailboxes this morning. I started to open the truck door but the brown turned and mad dogged me so I waited. She waited longer. Since she was larger than my Nissan pick up I thought I would forego the mail.
Free range and they are free. They crossed two cattle guards to get to the mailboxes.
I took pickups of all 3 but it was too far to show up.
