Snakes of Arizona

I have 68 snakes listed here that are found in Arizona.  Would you believe 17 of them are venomous??

to a person uninstructed in natural history,
a country or seaside stroll
is a walk through a gallery filled with wonderful works of art,
nine-tenths of which have their faces turned to the wall.
Thomas H. Huxley
