~~Here Piggy Piggy!~~

When one lives in Arizona, one never knows what they will see when they go put something in the trash bin!  I walked out to this the other evening. (And yes...I always carry my camera...so there.)


Javelinas, or peccaries, are really not piggies, although they have similar characteristics.

Javelinas (HAVE a leen a) can be quite aggressive, especially if their babies are present. And in this case, a baby was present!

Notice how the entire herd surround the little one!

Wow! What incredible photos!
I've had buzzards and rattlesnakes around my house, but never a javelina. That is amazing!
