Bear cub from our trip to the Smoky Mountains a few years back...
Damn! Look at those spurs!
I have to say, much like the coyote and the raven (and a few other species), the raccoon is a pretty amazing animal if you take a step back and strip away the negative associations we tend to fling at it. I have great respect for animals that are highly adaptive, creative, survivors. I'm not sure why we fault other species for those qualities, but I think it says a lot more about us than it does about them.
yea raccoons are pretty neat. If you recall i did have a run in at the Ex-GF's rental house a few years back with a family of extremely snarly aggressive racoon's. Bear sprayed them when they attacked us and they still wanted to fight.
and other times I have hand fed the lil trash thieves and scratched them on the back of the head.......
very crafty animals.
I had a pet raccoon for about 4 or 5 years before he got too aggressive. We took him for a 5 mile drive and dropped him off at some woods. He came back but got the hint because he never came up to us again. He would just wait until night and steal veggies off the porch lol. He crawled up in the barn attic and died a year or so later. Didnt find him until July...it was nasty
fox or coyote?
Kind of looks like a possum.
Strig for the win!
These little guys have been everywhere. Third one in two days in broad daylight.
Nanner ears likes to wander into the yard and graze, drives the dog crazy.
Nanner ears ?
Banana peel ears. Big furry scoops sticking out the side that are like radar dishes looking for the the slightest sound.
Very cool shot!
And the fish weren’t even biting. I guess that didn’t matter to him.
Nature is art. Yall proved it.
