As I blearily wandered outside to change the hummingbird feeder this morning I was greeted by a familiar grunt, but one I normally hear at night. A large male Javelina (Collared Pecary) was stood right in front of me, and then another grunt around the corner revealed a second large adult. As she scuttled away she was followed by the two smallest and cutest baby piggies I’ve ever seen. Awww, bless ’em!  😀

I rushed in and got the camera, but they had disappeared into the back yard. I waited a few moments and they came trotting past me. It was still quite dark and raining, so the photos are horrible. The male stood still for a second, so I did get one decent shot, but only a blurry one of mother and babies. I think they come through the yard at least once a night but it’s the first time I’ve seen them at Paton’s during the day.
