Have a Javelina?….

We do! We have a few!….PEEYEW!

The 3 Little Pigs

These 3 are as friendly as can be. They would love to just come up and hang out on the porch, but we haven’t let them….yet!

Over the past few years, the local Javelina (pronounced hav-a-leena for those who may not know), have become quite comfortable in Todd’s Backyard. They are lured by a tasty treat that’s always in abundance here…bird seed!

Now, you’re not supposed to feed these guys, but I don’t think letting them share the birdseed is a crime?

Of course they have other  favorite delectables such as: 1) Anything you may have just planted 2) Juicy cactus pads 3 )Succulent blossoms 4) Anything you would rather not have them eat!

Luckily, they haven’t cause too much ‘javoc’ here…

Some javies like to just ‘jang’-out under the bird feeders to catch a  bit-o-seed! Or root around in the roots to take a little mud bath in Todd’s  irrigation system.

He may be cool, but really…not so cool dude!

There is a group of basically 5 or six that visit on a regular basis. Our old buddy Jairy still comes around from time to time. Last week the group came to show off their newest addition to la familia…

The proud mommy tried to keep him from getting too close…

But, he seems to take after his older siblings/cousins/ friends? who have  quite the outgoing personality!

And like they say:

” In Todd’s backyard, the grass is always greena….at least it is for the Javelina 🙂 “

  • I also have “piggies” coming by to check out new plants, whatever the birds have left, and you’re right….whatever they want. I love watching them and love to see the babies.

  • These animals are an invasive species and if not removed will end up destroying whatever environment they are in. In most of the areas they have invaded there is a bounty on them and it is illegal to feed them. If not removed in 4 or 5 years they will have completely destroyed your garden with nothing left growing and the land all torn up.
