If you are interested in Javelina at all, this would be a good video to watch. You will see a rejected mating attempt, some darling baby Javelina, and some very up close video of a sizeable herd. I took this video from behind a brick fence that surrounds my back yard, so I was not trying to be one of those goofy people that try to go pet the Javelina. Here is the link to the video:

They do not see very well, and I was above them as well. I also moved very slowly when I did move and even though a couple of them looked right at me, they did not perceive a threat. I hope you enjoy!!!

While I have not seen any javalina babies at this point, the coyotes have been very active (and noisy) for the past week or two, especially near dusk.

Those babies are so small! I loved watching them. So far I have only seen their beady little red eyes at night crossing the road! Thanks for sharing all your wonderful videos!

Wow. That must be something, seeing them right outside your wall.

Thanks for taping this.

I am glad you all liked the video. I figure if I was lucky enough to get this close and see what I saw, it was only fair to share it! I know many of you may have seen Javelina before, but some may have not. Even if you have seen them before, maybe you have not seen them this close or attempting to mate or seen the babies!

Nice video -- just a FYI though, javelinas travel in droves not herds. We live east of Tucson and they make their presence known on Tuesday evenings when some folks put their trash dumpers at the curb. The javelinas have learned to push them over to get at the contents, and boy can they make mess! We now have to wait until Wednesday morning as they don't dare move around in daylight for their fine-dining raids.

I lived on the west side, Tucson Mtns Foothills off Tortolita, and one morning my large trash can was knocked over as I left for work around 5:45 AM. I was righting it but was very surprised when a javelina bolted out from inside the trash can, the lid jumping at me. I was a 220 and 440 runner in track in high school, didn't do high jump, but you'd never know it as I flew into the bed of my truck. Don't know who was more startled, it may have been a draw.
