It is a mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), most likely the columbianus subspecies.
Looks like some kind of mole cowrie. I'll have to check my books...
Cowries are not poisonous. Cone snails are.
This is actually a Bubble Shell.
Nice money cowrie!
You are probably right. There really isn't any "barring" on these guys, but the spotting on the Arizonas seem a little fuzzier around the edges of the spots than the barred's spots.
According to the Audubon Field Guide and the NM Dept of Fish and Game A. m. nebulosum is found in NM. The pattern doesn't match any versions of mavortium I've seen, but I'm still looking.
This looks like a gold dust day gecko. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phelsuma_...
Thanks for the ID, Karen!
Thanks bayucca, that looks like the right moth!
