The wild animals have to eat to stay healthy and on their feet.
Sometime they eat each other to keep nature in balance. Just to stay alive gets to be quite a challenge.
I wish I had time to tell you more, you've heard of them all I'm sure.
What would we do without the creatures, with their interesting and unusual features?
The Armadillos are poking under logs looking for food. It's mostly people they try to elude.
Whitetailed deer are making their tracks, looking for corn the hunters left in a sack.
Coachwhip snake is coiled under that bush, here comes a cottontail rabbit hush, hush.
Big jackrabbits aren't far behind, looking for someone's garden on which to dine.
A cardinal has perched in a huisache tree, looking around to see if a delious berry he can see.
The Horned toad is quite unigue, a big old red ant den he does seek.
A mama Racoon with babies on her back, looking for a pan of dog food to give them a snack.
The tiny little hummingbird flying around, trying to find the sweetest tasting flower near the ground.
Mr. Bullfrog in his color of green, a swarm of flies he thought he had seen.
Old whiley coyote snuck around to the back. He thought he had seen a chicken in that rickely old shack.
The catfish is napping deep in the pond until that lure went ker-plunk and made him respond.
We enjoy these animals and we always will, so please, all our animals do not kill.
