    Dead cow in foreground. Hungry coyotes in background. This was from three seasons ago I think at Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming

    I think I see it. Is that one of its legs coming up to the front side of the blue knob?

    Another amazing Australian beastie that I had never heard about. That critter is awesome, both for size and markings. I've never seen a lizard with polka dots!

    Too slow to get a pic, but last fall while riding near queen wilhelmina inn near ok-ark border 4 out of our group of 5 came around a corner and startled a 5' long black jaguar in the middle of the trail. Extremely rare sight, but happening more and more frequently. I'm told they do come this far up out of Mexico occasionally. He took one 25' leap and he was GONE !
    I was out front and he scared the crap out of me...

    That's absolutely awesome. I was in McAlester about a month ago but didn't see anything of the sort.

    Speaking of spiders... I saw this guy last summer on a ride here in SoCal. It must have been high 90's, and this guy was hanging out on the asphalt road that came out of the desert. He was moving pretty fast when I rode by and I didn't know what it was, so I stopped - and he immediately charged me! I remember thinking WTF?, but soon realized that he was only after a bit of shade. This is easily the coolest jumping spider I have ever seen - metallic green palps, that he kept vibrating, intermittently, very fast and then still - I wonder if he was using his palps to fan his underside - the asphalt must have been 120 degees. He was about the size of the last joint of my pinkie finger and about the same width. Easily one of the coolest little animals I've ever seen!

    Thanks! I cropped it a bit, but the only reason it's decent is that I just happened to have my dSLR with me that day. There is some creepy old cold war era ex-top secret stuff down where I was riding that day that I wanted to get a couple photos of. If I had only had my cellphone, no one probably would have been able to see what I had even taken a photo of!

    yesterday, saw a hawkish looking bird and a non-hawkish looking bird playing together. got my phone out as they perched in a Christmas tree together.

    kind of cute - it was like interracial love.

    Came upon a group of four burros in San Timoteo Cyn of Redlands, Ca. They group of four scattered but I felt blessed seeing those guys until I rounded the corner and came upon 30+ more. They saw me and took off running. It was like a stampede. They put some distance on me and then turned around to check me out. I snapped a pic but the distance was great and the light was fading but you can see a few of them in this photo.

    Those must be some of the burros that live in the San Bernardino Mtns during the warm season. I used to see some up in Big bear every Summer years ago.

    I see wild donkeys on nearly every ride - I'm just below the Box Springs on the MoVal side, just teh other side of the hill from Redlands. Never seen that many in one place - I've been seeing one family group a lot though, a mom, a yearling, and a little asset. I'm still not sure exactly how friendly they are - I'm a bit intimidated by them when they're close to the trails - especially the mom with the little one. I am sure I've seen people feeding them on the side of the road, or trying to. I slow way down and kinda creep along until they move back a bit.

    It's hard telling in that photo but could that be a "walking stick" rather than a spider. I used to see them frequently in upstate N.Y. they look exactly like a stick until they move. Very cool but creepy, similar to a Preying Mantis.

    Yeah we get the stick insects here as well but my guess is that spider is a net casting spider

    Ambassadorhawg, I know what burros you are talking about. I too used to see them up near Big Bear. There are small packs of wild burros and wild horses throughout California.

    They could be from the Big Bear area.. I know a few years back that the DFG rounded up a bunch of burros in Big Bear and transported them off the mtn for adoption which occurs in San Tim Cyn off of Pilgrim Rd. They are many horse properties there to house the burros.

    I do believe these burros have been roaming San Tim Cyn for many years and migrate over the hills into Moreno Valley. I have seen burros in Reche Canyon and also in Grand Terrace hills near Blue Mtn. There is an abundance of open range, food and water available to them.

    I also see packs of them off Hwy 15 coming back from Vegas. In the heat of the Summer, they are bunched up under dense Joshua Tree patches. Keep and eye open if you drive out that way. There's lots of them.

    ^ yes but the joey in the pouch of the one on the left would be a good size for that. Pity it isn't sticking its head or feet out.

    Not quite wild "life" but wild dead

    found this at the beginning of the trail head this morning. Not a good sign. Didn't look for the rest of it for obvious reasons...

    It did make me ride a little faster!

    I know the feeling - we found a dead cow on our latest Black Canyon run (I'll spare everyone the photos). Not the stuff you see on gramma's trails

    The big males are dangerous because they will stand on their tale and gut you with the claws on their feet. Yes they do box, search u-tube for that sort of thing.

    As for hunting, yes people still hunt them, to the point where they are no longer seen walking down the main street of Sydney anymore but they can still be found in the outer suburbs. We have plenty of rock Wallabies on the trails near us but they are so scared they are very skittish and therefore hard to see. There is enough of a market for their meat that the major supermarkets now stock it in the meat dept. You can tell the ones that have survived bush fires because they always taste a little bit smoky

    I know the area and although I haven't seen the burros out there I have seen wild horses out there. The desert is such an amazing place it's like it's lost in time.

    They ran for about 1/2 mile to meet me as I was riding. I don't know what they were expecting but they seemed disappointed when they got close.

    I went for a night ride last night. I only had my headlight because I can't find the battery for the handlebar flood light. Surprising deer like that is terrifying, especially when they don't move until you're 5 feet away.

    I got caught completely by surprise by this guy while out riding last March here in the Phoenix area. I rounded a corner and suddenly heard hissing and rattling right below my pedals. I thought I must have nearly run over a snake and stopped to take this picture, but, obviously, didn't want to get too close.

    I just got back from South Africa and I went mtb while I was over there. The rhinos were super cool but I wasn't going to risk getting too close to them.

    Good call. I've run into moose, deer, and buffalo while riding. The deer are no big deal but the moose and buffalo can be territorial. If I was to see a rhino while riding I think the word confused would be an understatement...

    I dug up a picture of a giant earthworm. I was going on a ride with my brother in the local trails. I have seen a few deers around, but it's really hard to take a photo of them, they escape really quick.

    Great Grey Owl

    This shot was taken today while hiking, but I've seen them before while riding. One buzzed my girlfriend's head on a night ride. It was around Halloween-time and the moon was full. Coolest thing.

    Has anyone ever seen a bigfoot! Living in the PNW I'm always on the lookout for one.
    They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time

    In a couple of years time I should be living in Washington state, I hear there are sightings up there. The idea of bigfoot has always intrigued me. All these years and no remains or any kind of physical evidence makes me a skeptic. But I still wonder what the hell it is so many people are seeing.

    Is the bird at the sharp jog in the boardwalk? Just checked on Wikipedia; lyrebirds are BIG, but us Yanks are not familiar with them!

    Yeah right on that bend, they are fairly elusive and run away normal but this one walked along the timber for a while then ran into the bush. They are on the Australian 10c coin.

    I grew up on a large ranch with a lot of animals, and I like animals. But, monkeys kinda freak me out.

    The Kangaroos are back at Lysterfield, Melb VIC.

    I've been riding the trail for 3 years. They were everywhere when I started. then Poof! they disappeared. Now they are back - great to ride along with them.... i think they enjoy it too.

    Black Snake at Paris Mountain in Greenville, SC on February 1, 2013

    I was a bit startled by this snake, which happened to be sunning himself just on the edge of the trail as I passed. He tried to strike at my foot as I pedaled by, but luckily he missed. Not that a Blake Snake would do any damage, but I still prefer not to get bitten. Todays temp was mid 50's, so I guess that is warm enough to get the snakes out...

    First picture makes it look like he's pretty big, so thought it might be a black bear cub. Second picture makes me want to guess a beaver, though I can't see a tail.
