Its northernmost range is said to be along the northern fringe of the Chugach Mountains in southcentral Alaska. Transplanted populations can also be found in such areas as Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Colorado, South Dakota and the Olympic Peninsula of Washington.

    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 hobbit.








    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.

    That is pretty damn cool! Looks like he's plenty comfortable just hanging out.

    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.
