The shot of this wolf with his legs so weirdly positioned sure looks eerie. We’re not sure, but it could be that this photo was taken as the wolf was turning, which gave his legs this strange position. However, like all living creatures, wolves can potentially have genetic issues that can impact their health and well-being.
It could be that this wolf has hip dysplasia, a condition in which the hip joint doesn’t develop properly, causing pain and mobility problems. This condition is thought to have a genetic component and is more common in certain breeds of domestic dogs, but it can also occur in wolves.
Wild Turkey Visit
Turkeys are traditionally considered the center of the Thanksgiving feast, so is it any wonder that when we see these wild turkeys, we think of Thanksgiving? Clearly, we're not the expert when it comes to observing turkeys in the wild, so we're pretty impressed with how big these birds look.
After a bit of research, we discovered that wild turkeys used to be an endangered species in the United States, but thankfully, conservation efforts over the past century have helped to bring their populations back. Nowadays, turkeys can be found all over the country, with many people enjoying watching them in the wild.
If that beak doesn’t look like it could tear smaller animals into kibbles and bits, we don’t know what does. Of course, it could also be that the angle the lens has on this bird makes it appear more menacing than he actually is. Birds of prey are awesome, but they can also be dangerous.
Vultures have often been misunderstood since they are scavenging birds that feed on carrion. But actually, vultures play an important role in many ecosystems by helping to clean up and dispose of dead animals, which can help prevent the spread of disease. It's also worth noting that some species of vultures are endangered.
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.
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.
