Animal Encounters of The Close Kind


We had a visit just a little while ago from a herd of Javelinas, we counted eleven in all. They're pretty skittish, but we were able to snap a few pictures of them before they took off running. As much as we hate to see our hybrid prickly pears being eaten by marauding wild pigs, we have to admit, the babies sure are cute. We've had them visit before, but never this many at one time.  

Life in the boondocks isn't boring, particularly if you enjoy Mother Nature's surprises as much as we do.

Here's some more information about Javelinas. (click your "back" button to return to this journal)
