You would expect to see a parada in a cow county, but it might be a lot harder to spot in a pogonip. If you’re in desert country, you might see burrofat, peach thorn, perky Sue or Mormon tea. The cui-ui, which can live up to 50 years, once flourished in Pyramid Lake but now exist in much smaller numbers. You might see some splatter-ass there, too. Looking for pogy? You’re better off heading to Lake Tahoe. For dinner, have some French frog.
