We do! We have a few!….PEEYEW!
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!
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.
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 🙂 “
