In summertime, I'll be travelling around Southwest USA into various national parks and to other rural attractions (including the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Zion, Death Valley, Mono Lake, Yosemite, Sequoia & Kings Canyon).
There is plenty of information out there on black bears and mountain lions, and I am happy with what I have read.
What I can't find is information on the smaller, but equally noteworthy, animals - the snakes, spiders, and insects.
What should I know about these? How should I prepare (e.g. my behaviour and lotions to use)? What should I do if I am bitten?
