Desert fauna: chuckwalla
Aug 1, 2006 - 10:44 AMThe stout-bodied chuckwalla is the second largest lizard in the U.S., surpassed only by the gila monster. A male can weigh up to 2 pounds, and sometimes reaches 18 inches in total length. When disturbed, it crawls into a rock crevice and gulps air, thus wedging itself in a crack and making extraction by predators extremely difficult.
Funny. When I feel threatened, I do exactly the same thing.
How much walla would a chuckwalla chuck, if a chuckwalla could chuck walla?
