LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Spring is in the air but many who live in Las Vegas know it's not officially spring until Mojave Max says so.
Staff at Springs Preserve are keeping a close eye on his burrow for any movement.
RELATED: 'Mojave Max Watch' is officially underway
When Mojave Max comes out from his winter hibernation, we know we can count on warmer weather in the valley.
There's still time for kids to enter the Mojave Max emergence contest.
You can make your guess as to when you think he will come out.
The closest guess wins a pretty cool prize package.
Last year, the date was April 1.
