Wow, just look at this big boy and his massive antlers. Judging by the size of those, this male deer must be very healthy. In North America, the average weight of white-tailed deer antlers is around 6-8 pounds, with some male deer able to grow antlers that weigh up to 15 pounds.
Now, we’re not sure how much his antlers weigh, but we’d hazard a guess that they’re on the heavier side. As you can probably tell, this photo was taken in infrared mode, and the black-and-white color just makes the footage of this deer and his big antlers look that much cooler.
The Bobcat Cam
This bobcat was out for a stroll one day when he decided to come and check out this shiny thing he hadn’t seen before. Then the camera took a snap of him as he was getting closer. He soon found out that this little thing also flickers and snaps, quite unlike any animal he knows.
While some animals may be curious about cameras and investigate them, others may be wary or even frightened by them and a fair few might even feel threatened by them and attack. This bobcat was definitely curious. He didn't mind getting up close and personal with this strange object at all.
As cute as cats may be – even large cats – this is not something you want to see on your security footage from outside of your home, especially if you’ve got cats (or dogs) of your own. We all know that animals, whether wild or domesticated, can get territorial.
The last thing you want to hear late at night is a cat or dog fight and have to worry about your furry friends. Fortunately, this is just another housecat. It could be worse, after all, you wouldn't want a cougar or bobcat in your yard. That cat (or dog) fight could get ugly!
I Just Can’t Bear It
Does anyone else just want to go pat this bear on the back and ask him how he’s doing? It looks as though he’s had a rough day and needs to talk about it, and maybe even get a bear hug. When seeing a bear like this one all on his own, we can't help but wonder about him.
What is he thinking? Is he waiting for some friends or just waiting for some lunch? We don't exactly have the expertise to know what's going on inside his head. We can only imagine that he must be hungry and perhaps this picnic spot was the last place he found some food.
A Pair of Coyotes
Here we see a pair of coyotes frolicking through this field, their coats are different colors so it's highly likely that they're unrelated. But as we know, coyotes are social animals and while coyotes are known to form strong social bonds with their own family or pack, they can also form bonds with coyotes outside of their immediate family.
We don't often see a coyote with a coat this dark, as the color of a coyote's coat changes throughout the year, appearing thicker and darker in the winter months and lighter and thinner in the summer. We wonder how this one got such a dark coat while the other one is much lighter.
