Good morning! "Coyotes mate between late January and March. Once the female chooses a partner, the animals may remain paired for a number of years. Young are born after a gestation of 60 to 63 days. Litter size ranges from 1 to 19 pups (the average litter size is 6 pups). They usually breed once each year. Coyotes can mate with domestic dogs and occasionally with gray wolves." #coyote #hikearizona #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! 🐢🐢 "Most tortoises are loners in the wild. They roam several acres, and only occasionally encounter other tortoises. If a tortoise encounters another, they will fight, mate, or both. Then they wander apart again (or one is chased away by the other)." "Fighting may occur when males encounter each other. Desert tortoises are equipped 
with a gular horn, a bony protrusion at the front of the plastron (bottom shell) which 
males use in combat with each other. The fight ends when the dominant male has 
forced the subordinate male to retreat or when he has been flipped onto his back." #tbt #deserttortoise #ig_arizona  #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

Good morning! "Spend the night in the Arizona desert and one of the first sounds you’ll hear in the morning is the distinctive call of the quail. This ground bird is found in many parts of the United States, including the southwest. Quails are small, plump birds with brown to bluish-gray feathers. A plume on the tops of their heads bob as they walk.  In spring and summer, you’ll see mother quails walking through the desert or grasslands, their babies trailing behind them. Quails are sometimes hunted for their meat. In some places, they have been hunted almost to extinction." #quail #hikearizona #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #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
Last night’s moonrise over Sedona 🌝
Sunday-Famday! 😺 🐈🐈🐈"While bobcats are actually a type of lynx (another accepted name for them is the bay lynx), in North America, the term is more generally associated with the Canadian lynx. On the surface, these two species look very much alike. Both, after all, are similarly proportioned, mid-sized cats with stumpy tails and pointed ears. Still, some noticeable differences do exist between them. The lynx is a cold-weather cat that lives further north and at higher elevations. Their enlarged paws act like snowshoes, enabling these hunters to pursue such game as snowshoe hares with relative ease. Bobcats, in contrast, are built for warmer environments. Also, while lynx mainly eat hares, bobcats have a more varied diet and will readily hunt birds, small mammals, reptiles, and deer. Here's another noteworthy tidbit: Bobcats tend to be much more aggressive—in fact, some zoo keepers call them the "spitfires of the animal kingdom." #bobcat #weroamarizona #bibcatkittens #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
Good morning! 🐍🐍"The Western Diamondback will coil, rattle fearsomely, and stand its ground when threatened. It bites hundreds of people a year, which is more than any other venomous snake in the United States.
Their rattles are used as a defensive warning sign - "stay away". Rattles are a series of interlocking segments that bounce against each other to emit the rattling sound. They are hollow and made of keratin just like fingernails.
Common predators of Western Diamondbacks include hawks, bald eagles, roadrunners, and wild turkeys." #westerndiamonbackrattlesnake #koldnews13 #cbs6  #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
