    I used to see them all the time when I lived in Breckenridge. Herds were right off the highway and my dog used to try to get them to play on Quandary Mountain.

    Jeff, that there is the skull of a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flores_man">hobbit</a>.








    Just kidding. It's most likely a gray macaque, a kind of annoying monkey we get here in Malaysia.

    Yes they apparently have made a huge come back in Colorado. They were pretty rare to see in the seventies and eighties

    Here a vid of a couple of Javelina, I spotted a couple of months ago at the base of South Mountain (Phoenix, AZ). Collard Peccaries (Javelina), are pretty common at South Mountain. They kinda resemble a pig, but don't call 'em a pig. The footage is pretty crappy; I was just learning how to get my camera dialed in.

    And here's a Black-tailed Rattlesnake, I came upon on my ride last week:

    Hope you don't mind me digging up a dormant thread. I was trying to find an appropriate thread to post this little guy and this fit the bill...

    Wildlife you have seen on trail...post your pics...-turtle.jpg

    He looked kinda mad. Like I woke him from his nap or something.

    I took these pics over the last couple weeks. The kits are usually pretty aloof and curious, unless mom's nearby. In that case, they hunker low and make themselves scarce. I haven't heard her signal them from afar, but I believe she does. I know their voices can be somewhat bird-like, so I maybe I heard it but didn't know it.

    Canol Road, Northwest Territories. I had about five seconds to find my camera for the shot as this caribou ran by.

    The animal had a gaping wound on its neck and a flap of skin about six inches long dangling from it. I figure it as running up the middle of the creek because it has long legs and ran faster in the water than whatever bit it. The only local candidates would have been a grizzly bear or a wolf.

    How wild do you like your wild life?





    4 and 20 Black Birds ... I baked in a pie.



    If you like the sculpture of Alexander Calder?... there are Sunder Class artists everywhere. The wind in the Australian bush has the mobile elements describing it.



    Formal occasions here are just as wild.



    Even when we go to the dunny here, we have to run the gauntlet against the killer roos.



    Then we have to make it back to our houses.




    This is why I ride a Giant Anthem.

    Warren.

    PS, If you think Roos here are nice and friendly, think again ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1GxAPXrUCQ

    The head and the body appear to be from different animals. There is old cloth medical tape taping the two parts together. I've seen worse surgery.

    I spotted this little bloke in the bush recently, caught in a feral dog trap. He was released and didn't appear to be injured and then ran straight up a tree ... a very lucky possum.




    A shot I took today on the Bicentennial National Trail in Canberra. There must be better places to nurture a Joey than in a thistle patch.




    Mobile hazards ... at this year's Solo 24Hr World Championships at Mount Stromlo.




    Looking down on a Wedgetail Eagle ... which is a bit of a change. The Southern Blue Mountains.

    This guy and I both needed a break at about the same time. I almost didn't bother to
    get the camera out, thinking he would fly away. Instead we caught our breath while I
    snapped a few close-ups.






    I think I had an 1100-lumen lupine light in one hand, the camera in the other to try and
    bring the ant out of the shadow.





    Porcupines are cool.

    I occasionally see moose near trails. They are just big and generally want to stay away from me.

    Now I am jealous of a rider on the other side of town: last week he thought he saw a rock in the woods but then the rock raised its head. A Lynx.

    (attaching my bad moose photo and a last summer's newspaper photo of a Lynx in a garden)

    Ran up on two armadillos while riding today. One of them took off into the woods. The other just kinda looked at me and kept foraging beside the trail.

    Smart armadillo:
