"Dangerous" wildlife around the state?
My wife and I are planning a road trip around your beautiful state in late March/early April. We plan on doing some very light hiking at times (there will be a couple instances where we won't be on anything resembling pavement). My question is, is there much to be concerned about in terms of potentially harmful wildlife? I'm from Kentucky, and have spent no time in the southwest, so my only experience is "Arid climate, based on the movies that means rattlers and scorpions everywhere." I don't plan on kicking over rocks or sticking my hand anywhere I can't see, but how much caution is needed?
Can't wait to visit soon.
