Thank you so much for that video of the baby javelina's, Bart. They are awfully cute. My favorite part was when the older one darted a foot ahead to try and get them to follow him(or her). That was so adorable!

I don't know if you read my text description on youtube, but when the second young javelina did not complete crossing the road, I said he "chickened out". But upon further reflection, I think this young javelina was quite brave to go back and bring the babies across the road. The part you speak of was indeed adorable! I love living where I can see these little guys on a semi-frequent basis!!! I am glad you enjoyed the video!!!

If that video does not give someone a cuteness fix, I don't know what would! Adorable is definitely the appropriate word to describe these javelina babies and the young brothers or sisters. I am glad you enjoyed the video wildflowers27, thank you for watching! I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!!!

So cute! One of the babies had a cholla on its butt.

I live in Oro Valley and moving to Idaho next month so trying to see all the desert creatures before I go. Yesterday I saw a Bobcat so now I’ve almost seen them all but I have yet to see a javelina and that’s at the top of my list. I’ll keep looking but they’re elusive buggers

The day after I received my car back after they repaired the damage from my last javelina encounter, I was driving down Continental near the KFC and saw another pack of javelinas. this one had a few newborns that were no more than 3# each. Those were the smallest ones that I have ever seen. They also had a couple of juveniles that were about the size of the ones that you show.

Javelinas are not hard to find. if nothing else, you can see them at the Desert Museum. Or drive around at night.

Sorry to hear that you are leaving Finper! I am sure you have your reasons for leaving this beautiful place in which we live! I hope you see a javelina before you leave, and I wish you all the best in Idaho!!!

I sure wish the javelina would figure out to stay away from the busy places like Continental. I have see one hit just north of Continental on La Canada, and one south of Continental also on La Canada. I also saw two babies hit on Continental near the post office. All very sad. The one hit south of Continental I moved from the edge of the road down in to the wash so anything trying to feed on it would not get hit. The next day, I walked by there and the whole thing was gone. I am guessing that coyote drug it off and had a feast. Sadly, this one looked to be only about 6 to 8 months old.

Thanks bk. I like Az but OV is a little too sleepy for me at my age. I can definitely see myself moving back when I retire though. I’m going to miss our mountain range here a lot
