Thank you very much Delana, Mindi, and Charlotte for your great comments.

Charlotte: No Gills needed in the Desert, as there is no water.
Only Gil needed in the Desert is Me! who else would keep track of my Big Horns, Lizards,& my little Owls?

Well I don't even have to research to see if they live here. They would have to have gills to burrow in our ground. :)

Gil--- I love these guys. They are so very cool. They dont look like they are very big, but pictures can be misleading too. I would love to see these little guys. I dont think we have any here in Kansas, but I am going to research. :0) Karen

Wow, Gil, this is just wonderful! And isn't it nice to see some green around him, even if it is only weeds!

Beautiful, indeed, Gil, and what a fantastic shot!
Maybe he is embarrased because he got a new tatoo
that says 'Gil Is The Man!". LOL I think he likes
you. He poses quite nicely!
