Happy Valentines Day
Happy Valentine’s Day! This heart is courtesy of a Javelina (Collared Peccary). They love chomping on fresh new pads of the Prickly Pear cactus. If they take a little nip in just the right place, sometimes we’re treated to a pad or two in the shape of a heart. It’s hard to get upset with these animals even when they overturn every one of my Cactus looking for fresh roots!
