#FFF (Flora or Fauna Friday) #Javelina are not pigs. They look similar, but pigs are from the "Old World" and #peccary are "New World" animals. There are many other differences most having to do with differences in physical anatomy. #stellaradventuresaz #azwildlife #desertanimals

Good morning! 😺🐈🐇"Unlike house cats, bobcats have extremely sharp teeth and they only eat meat. Their diet can consist of rabbits, rats, squirrels, certain types of birds, and even deer (particularly in the winter). Bobcats have also been known to eat chickens or lamb if they live near farms."

Whoo’s ready for a temperature of 111 today? Check out that little tongue 👅 We’re in a another heat advisory here in the desert so I hope these little owlets can find some shade and maybe even some water 🦉♡🦉These photos were taken in early May. Stay tuned for a couple more owlet posts just before they left the nest 🌵

At the end of April I finally managed to see two fuzzy heads peeking out of the nest. Owl chicks are born blind with a thin coat of natal down. Within two weeks, a heavier second coat of down appears called mesoptile. We went out of town for the weekend and by the first of May they had changed quite a bit. Slide left to see the difference. They were already starting to get the start of ear tufts. I’m guessing the #owlets are between 3-4 weeks old in the first photo and between 4-5 weeks in the second slide.

The river exit.
.
.
The water is high in the Salt River now, and it’s quite an effort for this band of wild horses to cross, especially for the foal. You can see the current pushing them as the swim, and they form a protective shield around the little one, with the lead stallion bringing up the rear once everyone is safe. In this photo they’re just crossed and are beginning to exit the water; the foal is in the bottom left of the shot.

Good night! 🌵🏜 "Because the Arizona climate is clean and dry, factors like pollution and humidity, which ordinarily mute the effect of the sunset, are non-issues.
Arizona’s “feather” clouds can catch light as it filters through and reflect it back to our eyes against a darker sky, creating a much more dramatic effect than in other places.
Additional particles in the air, like dust, make sunsets take on a redder tinge (rather than yellow), so the colors we get to experience tend to be more brilliant than ones showcased in other areas of the country."
