I don't know *tick* what you're *tick* talking about.  :notme:  :crazy2:

 

I do have some baby rat jaws that I want to make a mold of and then cast in silver.  Seriously.  I just need my studio set up again and functional.  What would this one be?  Nutria?  The teeth were wicked.

Hmmmm, seems to like skulls, etc. Maybe time to check Google maps and see if there are any signs of fresh digging in your backyard. :dig:

They're not that bad.  You could probably even do them in a dress.  I'd leave the heels at home though.

CornDoll and I were in Wichita Falls doing the virtual cache by the falls/river, and we had finished and were walking back up the sidewalk toward where we had parked. A couple was walking down the hill on the sidewalk toward us. I guess they flushed a coyote out of the nearby brush with their presence, because all of a sudden this very large coyote came crashing out of the brush, ran straight down the hill and past us (about 20 feet from us), jumped across the falls area (he didn't clear it, but he knew just where to land), and ran up the hill on the other side of the falls. I've never seen one that close before. We all just looked at each other like "What the hell just happened?" The coyote is probably typing a log right now in a discussion thread called "Humans Seen While Trying to be Stealthy in the Wild" or something like that. Freaky stuff...

Last night I checked a place for a cache that I knew was way far off.  But just in case.  Glad I didn't stick my fingers in scouring for a nano before looking.  There were two in there.  Smaller diameter than a husky pencil - or maybe up to that size.  Cross beam of an electrical box.

Had a coyote experience picking up the caches on the FOR series.  Really didn't realize they got so big.  This was around #3 or #4 and I got out and saw him.  He was staring at me, neither of us move for a minute.  He let me snap a good photo - well, 4 bad ones first then a good somewhat better one - and I went to get the cache.  As I got back in the Jeep he slowly took off.  When the door closed, he bolted to the woods but turned around and kept an eye on me. 

 

Just one I saw. Of course, I had my GeoDog with me.  I'm trying to point out the wild dog to her.  She was clueless -- until I took off.  THEN she sees it from far, far away.

This dead coyote was under the joshua tree near where we parked to walk to this cache today. GC1AF0T

It must have been recent - no smell or bloating yet.

attachicon.gifImageUploadedByTapatalk1386346687.014434.jpgI saw this cute creature photographing this armored looking Lone Star Beer creature while bike caching T2+P series near Bay Area Park

 

That creature is known for being pretty bold day or night and very thick-skinned. The armadillo is, too. :)

I went down Ferry Road in Baytown to check on one of my caches and scared an otter out of the bushes.  It swam a bit under water, then popped up to see what I was.  It was beautiful, but too fast for me to switch my GPSr to photo mode.

We weren't sure if this was a bobcat or a deer but we're going with bobcat since it's more exciting. ;-)  Element series on Addicks Reservoir, between Barker Cypress and Greenhouse.

I saw my first and only skunk in the wild while doing the Elements series.  We watched very carefully which direction it was heading to make sure we didn't have a too close encounter with it.  It was near the furthest cache of the group that we had done that day and I was going to be very irritated if it caused us not to be able to get to a cache and have to come all the way back later.
