Weekend mood! 😺🐈🐈🐈 "Rest assured, bobcats do not attack people. In fact, bobcat attacks are virtually unknown; however, no one should ever attempt to touch or handle a wild bobcat or her kittens.  Bobcats weigh between 15-40 pounds, which makes them small-to-medium sized carnivores." #bobcat #azstateparks #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #cbs6 #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #cbs6 #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow

Good morning! 🦌"Bull elk lose the velvet on their antler shortly before the fall rut, in late September and early October. During the rut, they begin to compete for access to females. Dominant males are able to build larger harems of females and restrict access to them by other males.
They defend a kind of "moving territory" around the harem. Males advertise this territory, their status, and attract females through bugling. Fights between dominant males and intruders can be intense - sometimes resulting in injury. The seasonal harems usually consist of 1 bull and 6 females plus their yearling calves.
A female will give birth to 1 calf. The gestation is about 8 months. The young nurse and are weaned in 2 months." #babyelk #azstateparks #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #cbs6 #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #cbs6 #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow

Wish I knew what this was🤷‍♀️ cause it is the coolest plant ever, so I think I'll call it the perogie plant 🤘
It took me a few seconds to notice the 🐢 a few inches away from the 🐍! 😁 "Desert tortoises share burrows with various mammals, reptiles, birds, and invertebrates, such as white-tailed antelope squirrels, woodrats, collared peccaries, burrowing owls, Gambel's quail, rattlesnakes, Gila monsters, beetles, spiders, and scorpions. One burrow can host up to 23 desert tortoises – such sharing is more common for desert tortoises of opposite sexes than for desert tortoises of the same sex."#deserttortoise #azstateparks #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #cbs6 #westerndiamonbackrattlesnake #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #cbs6 #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow

Breakfast time! 🐍🦎 The whole process  lasted for about an hour. " The Western Diamondback eats small mammals such as chipmunks, prairie dogs, gophers, ground squirrels, rabbits, mice and rats. The snake will also eat birds within reach.
In a matter of seconds, rattlesnakes can leave a fatal bite by injecting venom into its prey.
Rattlesnakes swallow their prey whole, then digest as the food passes though the body. On average, Rattlesnakes in the wild eat only once every 2 to 3 weeks." 😺#westerndiamonbackrattlesnake #weroamarizona #spinylizard #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow
How beautiful is this? © 🎬🖋 @pachucos_art ⏪ follow 🦉 "Owls are amazing. They are majestic creatures that rule the forest at night, their formidable silhouettes silently slinking and soaring through the trees. They are the original badass birds.
And then there's the elf owl.
While they are still stealthy little hunters, as their name suggests, these pixie owls are tiny – no bigger than a sparrow, in fact. And since somebody has to hold the title, it might as well be them: They are the smallest owls on the planet." #elfowls #owls #cbs6 #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #azstateparks #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow

Golden reflections of sunset on our amazing desert 🌄
Good morning! 😺🐈🐈🐈 "Bobcats were once found throughout most of North America from northern Mexico to southern Canada. In the early to mid 1900s, bobcat populations in many Midwestern and eastern states of the United States were decimated due to the increased value of its fur. However, international laws began to protect the world's spotted cats in the 1970s, and populations have rebounded since then. Today, populations are stable in many northern states and are reviving in many others." #bobcats #nature #cbs6 #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #azstateparks #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow

Just another day in the desert! 🦎 "Gila monsters have long claws that they mainly use to dig for food (like buried eggs), or sometimes to modify burrows (they don't dig their own burrows). They can also use these claws to climb up trees when necessary." #gilamonster #weroamarizona #cbs6 #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #azstateparks #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona  #fox10phoenix #Beon12  #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #whyilovewhereilive #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow
