Where is the Sonoran Desert ?

The Sonoran Desert covers the southwestern 1/3 of Arizona, a sliver of Southeastern California, the peninsula of Baja, the islands of the Sea of Cortez and Northwest Sonora Mexico. Phoenix and its suburbs are completely surrounded by beautiful, raw Sonoran Desert. It is a short trip to the edge of the city to see the Sonoran Desert as it has existed for thousands of years.

Why are there holes in Cactus?

The Gila Woodpecker hammers most of these holes hunting for insects or building resting nests.

What are the holes in the ground?

Kangaroo Rats, mice and other small mammals make most of the burrows. Tarantulas also burrow holes to live in.

Are Tarantulas venomous?

Yes. Tarantulas use venom to kill their insect prey. However, their venom is not dangerous to humans. Although their bite is painful, Tarantulas are peaceful creatures and do not bite unless they feel threatened.
