    Actually Javalina are collared peccaries and not pigs. We still call them piggies! :lol: This is right behind my house at sunset tonight. There were a heard of 23 in the wash.

    Thanks for looking!

    I've lived here for 9 years and have only seen them once. Your first pic is really neat ... I like the little guy peaking out from under mommy.

    Eek-- those critters are mean! I've never seen them in such big numbers before. I've only seen them in pairs, or worse, a mama and her babies.

    I love the picture of the little guy. He looks so fuzzy...almost... cuddly.

    Thanks! I was lucky to get the photos at all.

    The babies are very cuddly and they make the cutest little grunting noises! I'd really want one if they stayed that size.

    This group roams the neighborhood quite a bit. We've hand fed them carrots in the driveway before.

    Cool shots!
    Where we lived in Texas we had TONS of the fellas, they are pests!
    Daddy caught a spotted one at one time, and we had it for a while but I wasn't allowed to pet it.
    For obvious reasons.
    :lol:
    We also had a baby wild pig, which is an entirely different thing.
    We named him Wilbur. Then we ate him.

    Awwww, I really like that first one too, with the babies by their momma. I've seen peccaries in the zoo, but never knew from what part of the world they came.

    :shock:


    :lol: The way you worded that makes me giggle

    ... sings a rousing chorus of "Happy Birthday MissMia" and rummages around in the "Kitchen Utensils" thread to get the stuff to bake a cake ...
