Did this trail cam just catch an intimate moment between these two deer or was it a mere lick to clean off some leaves that got stuck on the other deer’s ear? Deer are known to groom themselves by licking and cleaning their fur with their tongues. However, it is not common for deer to groom each other as a social behavior.
Deer are generally solitary animals and unlike other mammals, they do not form social bonds or groom each other. This is quite an unusual sight captured on camera. Perhaps these two deer have formed some kind of bond? What else could explain their grooming?
Did you know that Wolverines, which are a type of mammal in the weasel family, are capable of standing on their hind legs? We didn't know that until we saw this photo! This behavior is usually used when they are trying to reach something, such as food, or to climb up a steep slope.
However, it seems here that this guy is just trying to get a better view. Wolverines are very muscular carnivores, they resemble small bears more than anything. Wolverines have quite the reputation for being ferocious and for having strength that is way out of proportion in comparison to their size.
Some birds, such as this heron, are known for their ability to eat relatively large fish despite their small size. Herons have long, sharp beaks that are designed to impale fish and hold on to them. The beaks are also serrated, allowing the birds to grip and tear flesh from the fish.
Despite the small size of their beak, these birds are some of the most impressive hunters in the animal kingdom! It's pretty cool to see footage of this remarkable accomplishment. Well, as remarkable as it is to us, it's probably just another meal for this beautiful freshwater heron.
This cougar looks like it's been hitting the gym and now has boulders for shoulders! This trail cam took this footage in Northern Alberta during the summertime. Finding a cougar on a trail cam can be exciting for wildlife enthusiasts or researchers as it provides an opportunity to observe these elusive creatures in their natural habitat.
Cougar sightings are relatively rare, and trail cams can capture images of cougars without disturbing their natural behavior. However, it's essential to remember that cougars are wild animals and can pose a potential danger to humans. So, if you come across a cougar, it's best to give it plenty of space and avoid any sudden movements or loud noises.
So apparently, there are scarier things in the wild than just wild animals. We are not sure what in the world is the animal that was caught riding this wild board. How did it get here, and what is it doing hitching a ride in the middle of a forest?
When looking a little harder, it almost looks like it could be hanging from the tree. Whatever it is and whatever it's doing, we don't really need to know, it's not going to change the fact that it's by far the creepiest thing we've seen so far, and we've seen some scary stuff!
