Arizona is home to the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon, crazy desert wildlife, and very hot summers.
Over the years, there has been a fair share of weird Arizona laws. From funny, to dumb, to absolutely absurd, read on to see 10 weird Arizona laws you had no idea still existed.
Okay, so back in the day, there were camels in Arizona. These days, if you see one, it’s probably someone’s pet or at a zoo. Neither is conducive to hunting anyway.
Arizona prides itself on preserving the west and all of the things that make it unique. Cacti are a particularly fragile symbol of the west — some types of cacti, like the Saguaro, take 75 years to grow their first arm! Whether or not prison time is on the table, you’ll definitely be facing a hefty fine if you’re vandalizing one of these fellas.
It looks like this one is a myth, but if this was something you were considering, we’re a bit worried anyway.
Again, no punishment seems to loom for disobeying this fabled law. But, with that notorious Arizona heat, can you blame whoever crafted this myth?
This law obviously hasn’t endured to the present day, but you’ve got to wonder what the original lawmakers were thinking when they passed this one…

Apparently this was a hard-hitting issue at one point… As for the present day? We’ll leave you to take your own chances. But if you do bother bullfrogs or cottontails, then the consequences are your own fault.
