This marten thought he could get his hands on some food from this bird feeder. Martens are part of the weasel family, which means they’re agile and skilled climbers. As we can see, this Marten can easily scale this tree and reach the bird feeder but he probably won’t be interested in the food as they are carnivorous creatures.
The footage of this Marten was taken in by a trail cam in Italy, which means this specific animal is considered an endangered species as their numbers are really low right now. However, other species of Marten, such as the American marten, have much healthier populations and are at risk or considered endangered.
Striped skunks are remarkable creatures, not only are they adorable but they're also known for their unusual defense mechanism, which involves spraying an incredibly strong noxious liquid from the base of their tail. This deterrent allows them to thrive in their environments as it's an incredibly powerful defense against all threats and predators.
We don't get to see them as often as other wildlife species due to them mostly being nocturnal animals, plus they're known for their strong aversion to humans. Besides all that, skunks are pretty cute and while they may not be considered cute by everyone, their unique characteristics can make them appealing to many people.
This cow looks like it’s doing the over-the-shoulder glance that celebrities like to give the cameras when they’re on the red carpet. She was definitely ready for her close-up when she got caught on this yard cam. Or maybe she’s looking over her shoulder because the sound of the camera startled her?
Cows can be easily startled or frightened, especially if they are not accustomed to human presence or sudden loud noises. Cows are usually docile and peaceful animals if they are treated with care and respect. However, they are large animals and can be dangerous if they feel threatened or cornered.
We expect to find many wild animals on trail cams, but it's quite unusual to find a puppy meandering through the woods. We wonder what happened here. Is this a puppy from a litter that lives in the woods or is someone taking it for a walk in their forest of a backyard?
Just the fact that this little guy is exploring means it must feel safe enough to do so, otherwise he would be waiting with the rest of the litter for his mother. We do hope he's ok, it is important to provide proper care and attention to puppies to ensure they are healthy and safe.
This scruffy-looking coyote happened to pass by this trail cam with bird remains in his mouth. While coyotes mostly like to eat smaller mammals such as rodents, rabbits, and hares, they are still opportunistic predators and if they can find other prey, they will try to catch and eat birds, reptiles, and even insects.
Coyotes are feisty and determined hunters and can pursue birds on the ground or in the air, depending on the species and their hunting techniques. Coyotes have been observed by biologists and researchers as they catch a variety of bird species, including game birds, waterfowl, and songbirds.
