DESERT ROAD RUNNER
THE ROAD RUNNER — CLOWN OF THE DESERT
About 22 inches in length, he would rather run than fly and sometimes reaches the speed of 18 miles per hour. It lives on a menu of insects, lizards, centipedes, mice and snakes. The Road Runner is the state bird of New Mexico.
Coyote isn’t on the menu?
