Topic: Around the House
We are NOT running a wildlife park, despite the increasing number of animal sightings. We've lately seen the nutria come out of hiding a lot more and then suddenly, here she is with the ugliest baby on the planet.
It, unfortunately, looks exactly like the adult - which is one of the nastiest looking things on the planet. At about the same size as a beaver, this rodent has a giant rat-like tail and gnarly huge orange teeth.
Because of their dark coloring and the bright sunlight it was difficult to get a shot with any detail.
The question I have is - why doesn't the bobcat eat these nasty things instead of snacking on the cute little bunnies?
The only entertaining thing was when the baby did not see mom come up from behind him. She touched his backside with her nose and he levitated several feet and jettisoned into the brush - much like a cat that has been startled.
You wouldn't know by their lumbering gait that they were that quick and agile.
