My good friend & brother-in-arms Erik is in the great Sonorra Desert of the American Southwest . . . a place I know well and love . . .
Mornings are beautiful there . . .
Erik is originally from this area, he was raised in the desert, so I asked him to track down some wildlife for STORMBRINGER . . .
Horned Lizards, known as Horny Toads, abound . . .
A coyote was here . . .
A snake - NOT a sidewinder - was here . . .
Hard to tell what we've got here, from the photo - I'd say some kind of lizard, although there is no tail drag. Not a bird. Maybe a small critter of some kind . . .
From a survival point of view, knowing where the animals go tells you 2 things: A) where to set your traps & snares, and B) where to find water. Now get busy with that shelter, the desert sun is coming up and it's going to get hot . . .
