Dawg....I would be SOOO tempted to do the rubber snake thing...
We have several kinds of snakes out here, including the deadly Mojave Green rattler
, king snakes, probably garters, and some kind of really pretty bright yellow snake. Might be a racer, not sure. We don't have much in the way of frogs or toads, maybe some of the folks with ponds have them but I'm pretty sure they've been brought in from somewhere else.
We do have these little guys, I think they're so cute.
The Horned Toad, which is technically a lizard. We used to go catch them as kids, then release them. Docile little things, but when threatened, they freak out their predators by squirting blood out of their eyes at them, with precision aim.
