Re: "Mini-Challenge" 2015

Thanks everyone for replying, and yes im looking to cross a king off my list, though it would be more of a personal goal rather than for my project. Crotalus are my focus, though.

It was found in Utah County. And yes, I took care of it. Which I hated, but I guess theres really no other option. I would imagine if there were leopards around, they were obliterated a long time ago, because I saw a few more around too.
