The last couple of years have been wetter than the normal during the 10 year drought. I think the extra water is causing reptiles and mammals to reproduce more than normal. It sure seems like it to me, anyway. Here are some of my photos of juveniles.
I came upon this juvenile Tortoise in the River Mountains in the spring.
Came upon this little Cottontail on the same trip as the Tortoise.
Spotted this little guy in my back yard.
This is a very young Chuckwalla that I caught in Valley of Fire. I think it is only 5 or 6 weeks old.
